Who's Anona?

Anona is a friend with a flock of adorable rescue chickens, and their mischievous antics needed to be immortalised in embroidery. So in tribute to the flock who started it all, here's Anona's favourite breed of chicken - the beautiful Lavender Pekin.

Pekin chickens were said to be kept as pets by the Emperor of Peking and arrived in England in the 1860s following the looting of the Emperor's Summer Palace during the Anglo-French Expedition. They are known as good egg layers with lovely docile temperaments and soft abundant feathers, particularly around the feet!
