Thinking of keeping chickens?
If you are new to poultry keeping, we will do our best to help you set up with everything you need and offer advice on poultry rearing, poultry housing, point of lay hens, pullets, their care and maintenance.
There are few hobbies as rewarding as keeping some laying hens in the back garden. Not only do they amuse you with their antics, their gentle clucking is really quite therapeutic as well. And that’s before you even get those wonderful fresh eggs every morning!
Financially, you make a small profit on the deal as well. When you compare the cost of eggs in the shop with what you spend on your own hens and feeding them, you do win on the deal.
Can I have different breeds but kept together?
Generally yes. As our hybrids are reared in batches of mixed breeds then it’s not a problem as they are reared together however sometimes we do come across a very timid or bossy hen, and it is obviously best not to select these two hens to live together.
We recommend our hybrids as they are Friendly , Placid, Hardy and Productive!
Are you ready?
In the nest box put a couple of hand full of straw so the hens can get comfy to lay you an egg!
