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,

 

Buying your birds:

You can simply call into our farm on a Friday and Sunday to have a look or buy birds.  You can also reserve birds through our website for collection from the farm on a Friday and Sunday.  Reservations are made against breed types and not specific birds, so you are still able to choose the birds yourself when you collect.  Making a reservation ensures we keep that number of the chosen breed for you.  Please note our birds always show as 'in-stock' on our website to allow reservations to be made from our current or next flock of birds.  Once we have received your order we will check the stock levels and contact you to confirm their availability.  If you have not placed an order or have not received our confirmation, please contact us before making a special trip to our farm to avoid any possible disappointment.  If any of the birds ordered are not available in the current flock we will let you know when we will next have them and if this is not acceptable then we will issue a full refund of your deposit. 

UPDATE - MAY 2020

We are now taking orders for our July flock of hens (our May and June flocks are all reserved).  To place an order please select your hen choice, choose 'pay in full' and add to your basket.  Please note we only have a limited flock and if the 'pay in full' option is not available then we have sold out of that breed (payment in full is required as deposit payments are not being taken currently to avoid additional transactions at collection).  We will contact you to arrange a collection date*

For updates on hen availability and collection dates please subscribe to our newsletter so we can keep you up to date.
