All our hens are sold from 16 weeks. All Hens are Fully Vaccinated and regulary wormed. Hens are housed indoors to view and choose from, so no need to worry about the weather. Take your time from a wide range of hens to choose from. Different types of hybrids can be mixed together.

Flight feathers can be trimmed if required and we can show you how do this for the future, although we are happy for you to bring back your hens to be re-trimmed at no extra charge. You will need to bring a cardboard box or purchase a cardboard carrier from us to take you hens home.

For health of the hens we only sell from February to October. Full advice will be given upon taking your hens home, but try to read our pages on looking after your hens.

Hens all lay between 280 - 300 eggs in their first year.
