Need a way to get your hens home? We can provide carry boxes which hold up to four hens for £2.50. - boxes currently sold out, will hopefully have more in stock within a couple of weeks!

Hybrids are hardy birds, bred for egg laying in many different colours, often bred (and named) to emulate some well loved pure breeds. Hybrids come fully vaccinated and are a good choice for those looking for something simple to lay well in the garden.  Your P.O.L hybrid pullets will usually lay within 2-4 weeks of bringing them home, some will lay sooner and some may take a little longer depending on the individual bird. Most hybrid suppliers sell birds at 16 weeks old, our hybrids are a little older (18-20 weeks) to reduce waiting time for eggs. 

We also cater to small holding customers, please contact us for Bulk order prices (25 hens +)
