Need a way to get your hens home? We can provide carry boxes which hold up to four hens for £2.50. 

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 +)
