We have been supplying Poultry to the Back Garden Keeper for nearly 20 years and offer a wide selection of Quality Hybrids and Pure Breeds at point-of-lay, ranging from little Bantams to Large Fowl. In the Spring and Summer we also offer Hatching-Eggs from our own flocks and often have a good selection of Cockerels to choose from.
We can supply birds in either small or large quantities throughout the year. You are welcome to come along to our farm to have a look at the birds and you can pre-order birds through our website (once your order is received we will check the current stock levels so please await confirmation of availability before making a special journey).
Our animals are kept in clean, comfortable conditions; you will not need your wellies and waterproofs to have a look around. We work only with reputable, established breeders and breed details and vaccination certificates are available with all of our birds. Please refer to our livestock terms and conditions regarding order cancellations and refunds before purchasing hens.
