We rear a variety of hybrid birds that originate from Rhode Island Red, Barred Plymouth Rock, New Hampshire, Sussex and Leghorn lines, all of which have been carefully chosen for their temperament and their egg-laying abilities.

All of our chickens reared here on the farm have access to outside pasture from an early age. This free-range rearing system ensures that we produce happy, sturdy, healthy hens to sell to you.

Our chickens are available, fully vaccinated, at point of lay (around 16 weeks old) and should start to lay at around 20 weeks of age.
