Egg Kurma and lovely chickens

Past two weeks we had our county fair and there were variety of rabbits, goats, pigs, hen and ducks. They were very different from what I’ve seen in India. My brother is very much interested in all different species of farm animals. He had few pygmy goats, budgies, cockatiel and lovely Indian Fantail pigeons back in India.
