The Marsh Daisy
John Wright and Charles Moore of Lancashire created the Marsh Daisy from a mixture of breeds between 1880 and 1913. The breed consists of blood from Old English Game bantam, cinnamon Malay hens, black Hamburgh/White Leghorn cross hens, Pit Game Cock and Sicillian Buttercups The Marsh Daisy is a hardy bird, which is well suited to free ranging, as it is an excellent forager. They are long-lived birds and are good layers of tinted eggs. They also make excellent broodies. They are upright, active birds that are very well suited to swampy and marshy ground.
