The Marsh Daisy is a rare breed of chicken originating in Lancashire, England, Marsh Daisies are one of few native breeds that is on the downward slope to extinction and is listed as an endangered breed by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.
The Marsh Daisy is a hardy bird, which likes to free range, as it is an excellent forager and lays around 250 tinted eggs per year; Males will reach an average weight of 6.5lbs while the Females make around 5.5lbs, Marsh Daisies do not mind the rain and are well suited to swampy and marshy ground.
The Marsh Daisy is a calm and very gentle breed even the males showing little or no aggression.
I take great pleasure in raising such a rare breed which is certainly worth preserving.
