Hedgerow Henporium is based in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, not far from Wirral and North Wales and we are also agents for the famous Black Rock ® chickens that are delivered to us direct from the Muirfield hatchery in Scotland.

What sort of chicken breeder are we?

Hedgerow Henporium is a chicken breeder of various types of lovely chickens for sale in Cheshire. We handle them daily to ensure that they are socialised and, therefore, make perfect pets. No Rocky Balboa moments required here!!

We can supply all ages from cute and fluffy day old chicks up to 18+ week point-of-lay chickens.

If you want to witness the magic miracle of new life, we can supply hatching eggs, or even incubators for hire if you don’t have a broody hen. Our incubator hire and brooder hire packages are very reasonable and fully equipped, to remove all the guesswork.

We can also hatch to order for you if you would like a specific breed and have sourced your own hatching eggs.

Our girls are sent off with their newly adoptive parents with care notes appropriate to their age.

All our birds come with LIFETIME AFTERCARE support too.

What we don’t do

We don’t keep bantam sized chickens. Check our blog page here to find out 8 reasons why we feel you would be short-changed with them. We can hatch them for you if you provide your own eggs, but otherwise they are not what we stock. Large fowl that lay proper sized eggs is what we are about.
