Hybrid Hens

Hybrid Hens

Hybrids make the perfect hens for many situations, from a small scale back garden set up, through to a larger commercial flock. With a selection of different feather markings and colours they look very attractive as a mixed flock, provide a mixed basket of egg colours and also prove very functional with high numbers of eggs laid. 

All our hybrids have a comprehensive vaccination programme (something that is un-economical for small scale rearing) and parent flocks are tested for salmonella.  A full vaccination certificate is available upon request.

Hybrids are a result of crossing many generations of birds with ongoing selection of characteristics, creating offspring with strong traits such as high egg numbers and egg colours.  Originally reared for the commercial market with the well known 'brown' hen, there are now many breeds of hybrid layers to suit both commercial and domestic poultry keepers, with attractively coloured birds laying brown, white, tinted and blue eggs.

We pride ourselves in keeping and selling happy, healthy chickens and encourage everyone to keep their own hens in the same way.  Our Hybrids are sourced only from reputable, established poultry breeders, with full traceability.  The hatcheries follow strict biosecurity plans and offer a commitment and determination to supply only quality stock sourced and supplied in a responsible manner.  During their stay at our farm we give the hens the utmost care, keeping them in very clean conditions with ample room and access to an outside pen.  They are fed quality feed and we offer our help, advice and ongoing support to our customers.  We provide an animal carrier or box (included in the price) to ensure your hens have the best journey home,

UPDATE April 2021: 
We are now taking orders and arranging collections for our current flock of hens.  To place an order please select the birds of your choice and add to your basket.  Please note we only have a limited flock and if the breed is not listed as 'in stock' then we have sold out of that breed.  Payment in full is required.  We will contact you as soon as possible to arrange a collection date*

You can also pre-order hens from our May and June flocks, please select the 'pre-order' product and list the breeds of your choice in the customer comments box.
