Dory's ( Blue Egg layers £24

Dory's are a Legbar hybrid which the majority lay a blue / green egg with the remaining producing a pastel coloured egg.

It could be any of the colours in the picture above, so blue, green, olive, peach, cream..

It's not just the novelty of having a coloured egg layer with the Dory it's her appearance that is most eye catching. These quirky hen's have a elegant upright fan tail and tufty hair do that make them stand out in the flock.

Welsummer 14 wk old pullets  £25 each

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 redruthpoultry.com
