Take a drive to Armstrong and check out the largest breeder of quality, refined, well-pedigreed miniatures in Canada.

Chickadee Ridge Miniatures is home to over 200 horses, quail, doves, emus, pheasants, peacocks, wild turkeys, pot-bellied pigs, miniature cattle, goats, sheep and deer.

The 80 picturesque acres also house a wallaby, snow monkey, reptiles and the newest arrivals, two ring-tailed lemurs.
