£14 each  Warren

The warren pullet is an orangey brown bird that is seen everywhere.
It is the original hybrid. It is a quiet bird with a lot of good qualities.
Bred to lay like a machine, commercially it is kept for a period of 12-18 months before it is replaced mainly because its egg quality deteriorates. In normal free range conditions they can continue laying for a number of years. In the second year of lay their egg shell can become thinner, and become misshaped.
They will lay up to 320 eggs in its first year. 

Point of lay Hens for sale from £14 each

 white egg laying breed £15 each

White Leghorn
Leghorns are prolific layers that rarely go broody and are non-sitters unless left undisturbed. Eggs are white and of good size and are laid throughout the year. Chicks are easy to rear. They feather up quickly, are fast growers and mature quickly. The comb is large so care needs to be taken in cold, frosty weather to avoid frostbite. They can be left to roam freely but are just as happy in a run. They are sprightly, alert birds and can be tamed but not enough to allow handling and prefer to remain rather aloof. They can be rather noisy and will roost in trees given the chance.

White leghorns are another of my favorite birds to have on our farm Redruth poultry They are a basic, no nonsense bird. They rarely cause any trouble. They eat. They lay nice very large white eggs.

Always a good choice of breeding cockerels in stock £10 each​​ Cockerels

Come and see us soon Chickens come in all shapes, sizes and nearly every colour of the rainbow, so choosing the perfect poultry can be a tricky thing to do. When deciding, you should ask yourself the fundamental question, what are you looking for in a bird? If it is eggs (and lots of them) then it’s probably best to start with a hybrid. If it’s for exhibiting or as a pet, than perhaps one of the more unusual Polands or docile Pekins would be best for you. Or if the lawn and flowerbeds are your pride and joy, breeds such as a Brahma which are less likely to dig due to their voluptuous pantaloons might be the hen for you.

Pure Breeds are chickens which fulfil a list of features specific to that bird. The best way to thinkabout Pure Breeds in chickens is the same as a you would Pure Breed dog. Hybrids are the more commonly known of chickens. Typically more robust, hybrids are a great option if you are new to chicken keeping as they are often more docile, excellent egg producers and rarely do they go broody
