We have been involved with poultry on all levels since 1945, from commercial farming to showing pure breeds and we are ready to help with any advice you need. We sell utility point of lay hens and chicks which are great backyard layers at discount prices, as well as rare and heritage breeds, heaps of chickens for sale, day old chicks, started pullets (12 weeks) and point of lays. We also stock ducks, ducklings, guinea fowl and meat chicks.
We have been amazed at the interest in poultry in the last few years. Each week we are dealing with hundreds of customers and we can see a real trend to people getting back to basics.
Families and customers are welcome any of our opening hours to come and look at the wide range of poultry and equipment available. Many just come to bring the kids or stroll around. We have a 5 acre property in the city where hens and chicks, ducks and ducklings,turkeys and geese roam around on free range. Feed the other farm animals or have a drink or snack from the canteen.
You will find coops, feeders, drinkers, feed and straw available at budget prices. Incubators can be hired or purchased with fertile eggs so families can hatch their own chicks.
