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 October 2021: 
W currently have a selection of hens available.  You can call into the shop to choose and buy your hens or you can reserve hens by placing an order on our website.  Collections are on Fridays and Sundays and you can choose your hens before we pop them in a carrier for you.  Once placing an order you will receive an email confirming a collection date.
