Large Fowl Chicken

Norfolk Grey

After almost dying out in the early 1970s this beautiful bird has been revived and continues to amaze me with its beauty. The Norfolk Grey Cockerel has a beautiful silver hackle and the hen has rich black feathering which is laced around the throat. They lay medium sized eggs and are great foragers

Blue Orpington

Blue Orpington

A very docile placid bird that tolerates being handled thus making it an ideal back garden pet for children.

Due to their size, they are not very flighty, or agile so high fencing is not required.

They look large but this is actually due to a very thick layer of soft feathers. They are not the best of layers may be only laying approximately 130 eggs per annum.

£1.50  Per egg

Crested Cream Legbar

The crested cream leg is a very attractive hardy bird that very rarely goes broody.

They are a light bird so fencing needs to be fairly high. They are also a little flighty but with regular handling become tame if you feed them some tasty treats.

The hens will lay approximately 180/200 eggs per year of beautiful blue/green eggs. They are also an auto-sexing breed which means you can tell the males from the females as soon as they hatch.

The females are much darker than the males which if you can do it the males can be dispatched saving on feeding costs. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to do this yet but have always managed to sell my cockerels on as unrelated breeding stock.
