Latest Stock For Sale
and Breaking News
This post is here to show you at a glance what we have going on and what is the latest chicken availability for sale.
Breeds available as at 13th April 2021
We had a busy year in 2020 as it seems COVID 19 has encouraged people to begin to keep chickens in the garden. 2021 is beginning to show a similar pattern so we are hatching as fast as nature will allow whilst still being mindful that we need to give them the best care possible.
This year we are hoping to have new breeds around. We have obtained some rather lovely Ixworth chickens as our breeding stock so once they start to produce eggs in sufficient numbers we will be offering those for sale in due course.
We are now offering hatching eggs for collection only just at the moment. Egg supply for our incubators is a little on the low numbers side. Some breeders keep the lights on to fool the hormone system into a continued laying pattern but we allow our garden girls to roll with nature and have a well earned rest, so please bear with us. Hatching eggs will be available from April 2021
We are still running a waiting list if you want to be told when we have hens available. Please register on our contact form to go on the waiting list to be notified as soon as the available to be released for sale. See (proposed) stock list below. How our waiting list works

We are hoping that people will find the easy-to-follow bite size chunks an enjoyable experience. It is crammed with masses of information you should know about keeping chickens. It will take you on a deep dive into the fascinating world of this wonderful creature. We guarantee that you will learn things that will make you think about chickens in a totally new light.
It will help you make good equipment choices, avoid illnesses, and be able to spot them before they get out of hand.
Getting the right coop for example will make the cleaning out of your chickens a 10 minute job rather than a real thankless task. We help you get it right, first time. This will save you money and time and who doesn’t need some of that?
Chickens are enjoyable but making poor choices can take the shine off it very quickly.
We are now able to offer Chickenguards for your coops
Having chickens is great but getting up early in the morning to let them out especially in Summer is not so great.
Fitting a chickenguard on your coop means you can have that lie in or even just get up at normal time rather than chicken time.
Chickenguards will allow you to go out of an evening and not have to get back at dusk to shut your chooks away. Chickenguard will do it all for you. Your chickens will not demand that you become party poopers.
Battery powered with 4AA batteries which last from 6 to 12 months.

We are now stocking Henlays Roost chicken coops.
Perfectly designed coops that are manufactured from recycled plastic.
Built with both chicken welfare and human welfare in mind because humans matter too. They look and feel solid.
No more back breaking stooping or crouching to clean out. Contortionism is also not required. Just open the roofline, lift the well spaced perches out and hey presto, the entire coop area is at the mercy of your shovel and scraper.
Red mite will be spotted in double quick time so therefore you can treat if necessary as they have no where to hide.
