We only have small amounts of pure and rare breed chickens for sale every year. As they are seasonal layers we don't usually start having chicks until Easter. They are not prolific layers so there are only a set amount of eggs we can incubate every year. We vaccinate our pure breeds for the important Mareks disease

 

AVAILABILITY

Availability below is updated regularly (as per the date on the Homepage Noticeboard).  On busy days it can change hourly so please call ahead if you are travelling a distance to get to us.  Please see our Hybrid Chickens for Sale and Cockerels for Sale for other breeds.

 

Whilst we don't take orders for pure breeds as hatching is so unpredictable, we can take your details and contact you as soon as we have the birds you are looking for.  If you are looking for a certain breed it is a good idea to do this as demand for pure breeds is so high, and they often sell the day we put them out for sale (before we get a chance to put them on the website).  Please contact me if you would like adding to the lists.

 

  

All our pure breed chickens will need to be kept away from older birds until they are around 20 weeks old or more.  Young pure breeds need to be kept on growers pellets until they are around 20 - 25 weeks old as they are very slow growing and although vaccinated, they will have an immature immune system.
