These are the main large fowl breeds we keep.
Rhode Island Red,
Light Sussex and Cream Legbars.
Occasionally we stock the Warren hen at Point of Lay
The Light Sussex is still a very popular breed to keep. Bred to be a dual purpose bird (this means they are used for eggs or meat) It is one of the most productive breeds we have today. The hen will lay around 260 large eggs that are cream to light brown in colour. The Light Sussex is one of the oldest breeds that are still in existence today
The Light Sussex chicken is an alert but docile breed that can adapt to any surrounding easily. They are good foragers. Whilst they are quite happy to be free range, they will also be fine if kept in a confined space.
Rhode Island Reds
Sorry, nothing available at the moment
Friendly and full of character, they will make a great family pet, and they require surprisingly little space to roam free. The Rhode Island Red, are a utility bird, raised for both meat and eggs, and also as show birds. They are a popular choice for the back garden, because of their hardiness.
These chickens are your typical laying hen - hybrids bred for commercial egg production. They are friendly and don't mind being handled. They are very easy to tame. Put a spade in your hand and they follow you around the garden for worms and sometimes they come into the house given half a chance. Excellent with young families and new to chicken keepers.
