We have several cockerels for sale at the moment. The breeds we have are Brahma, Araucana and Cochin. These roosters are what we have left from our breeding program. We handle them regularly so they are mild mannered and accepting of human interaction.
Cockerels make a beautiful and valuable addition to a flock of hens as they are excellent as an early warning sign of danger. They will protect their flock with vigour against any predator. They also find food for the flock and will provide fertility for the eggs when they are laid.
It is always better to match the hen breed size with a similar sized cockerel. Something like a Brahma for instance is better suited to the large breed sizes like Cochin, Orpington or indeed Brahma. You don’t need to get the same breed of cockerel as your hens unless you want to do breeding for pure breeds.
Please note that we do not sell our boys for the table or for any other purpose than to accompany a flock of hens.
The gallery above is a small selection of what we have available. We have Brahma in Buff, Blue Buff Columbian, Lemon Pyle and Gold Partridge. There are also some Cochins in Blue Splash. There is one Araucana cross in Black also left.
All the boys we have are £15 each which reflects the amount of care and socialisation we have given to them as they grow. It also contributes to their feed and bedding costs.
