 Quality Point Of Lay Hens

         

Poultry keeping is in my blood and I am proud to carry on my family tradition. My father was at the forefront of developing the modern hybrid laying hen back in the 1950's. Among others he bred prize winning strains of White Leghorns one of the most prolific layers of its time and developed several hybrid hens that won national egg laying competitions. I now carefully select birds from top national producers to bring you excellent layers for your own egg production.

Our Hens 

Our Quality Point of lay hybrid laying hens are reared specially for us by professional Bio Secure, hatcheries, where they go through a  comprehensive health screening and vaccination programme lasting the full 16 weeks to ensure proper protection from over 12 different diseases. Many of these vaccines require specialist and expensive equipment, specialised training or vets to carry them out, so beware 'backyard' sellers of supposedly fully vaccinated hens as they have usually only had 1 dose of vaccine which does not give complete protection for you and your family.

Choosing your hens is very important, we want you to get the right birds for your situation, don't be afraid to ask us lots of questions, and bring your children with you to choose the birds, we are always happy to chat with you, answer any questions you may have and advise you as to which would be the most suitable birds for you. We are happy for you to come and chat to us and have a look at the chickens before you buy, you can even reserve your birds if you fall in love with a particular one! (we ask for a £5 deposit and 30p per bird per week to over food and bedding)We also sell layers pellets, Equinola bedding which is what we use, and boxes to transport your birds home in.

Please ring to check availability as our birds sell out really quickly although we do have regular deliveries and aim always to have some birds in stock.
