All birds sold by us are reared to high welfare standards and have full traceability. We do not purchase birds from farm clearances or livestock markets.
New Keepers - If you are new to poultry keeping we will do our best to help you set up with everything you need and offer advice on the basics of chicken keeping. Poultry Keeping Courses are recommended and available from £30 for 2 people by prior arrangement. This represents good value for money and is strongly recommended for new keepers.
Taking Your Birds Home - Don't forget to bring a clean, lidded box, crate or pet carrier if you are purchasing birds from us.
As hens are flock animals they must be kept in same species groups of two or more, for this reason we do not sell single hens.
Please ensure that you are happy with your birds before you leave the premises as we cannot take them back once they have left our farm. If you notice any problems once you get them home please get in touch as soon as possible for advice.
Poultry must have a have a minimum of a square meter per bird of outside space, free access to food and water and predator proof accommodation. It is very important when introducing new birds to an existing flock that you quarantine for two weeks, then carefully introduce under careful supervision. Hens can be extremely territorial and are known to attack or starve new flock-mates.
After Sales Service - Please telephone during our opening hours if you need any advice or have any concerns. Any basic advice is given in good faith and is based on our own experience as poultry keepers. Professional veterinary advice should always be sought in case of illness or injury.
Payment Terms - Payment will be required on collection or on order. Credit Cards and Cheques are not accepted and we do not have the facility for contactless payment.

Our liability is limited to the cost of the animal, product or service purchased.
