About Chatham Island Sheep
It is believed that Chatham Island ferals have been living wild for almost a hundred years, and it is possible that they originated from some Saxon Merinos that were taken to South East Island (another of the Chatham group) in 1841.
The most noticeable difference between these and the feral sheep of Pitt Island is that the Chatham ferals are mostly white-woolled, whereas those on Pitt are mostly colored.
