11th October 2017 - Pure breed chickens are only available seasonally, usually from around July - November and we only have very 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 and therefore pullets from July/August onwards. They are not prolific layers so there are only a set amount of eggs we can incubate every year. 

 

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 16 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 they have an immature immune system.
