Hybrid Laying Hens

Our Hybrid hens are professionally reared to High welfare standards with a comprehensive vaccination and blood testing programme making for happy healthy hens!

Hybrids are the product of cross breeding pure breeds to create a super chicken that is more productive. Many of the breeds are based on the Light Sussex, Leghorn and Rhode Island Red breeds which are well known for their good laying traits. Hybrids are great if you are new to chicken keeping as they are generally very easy to care for, hardy and have docile natures as well as being very productive. We sell our hybrids from 17 weeks onwards and they usually come into lay around 22-24 weeks, so it best to get them just before this time to get them settled. They are fully vaccinated and wormed and can kept together so you can have a variation of breeds and egg colours. We have a continuous supply of POL birds throughout the year ready around the middle of the month so whenever you are ready for your new additions we should have some ready for you! All birds are guaranteed for 2 weeks. Egg numbers and colours are an approximate guide only.

Please Remember hens are sold on a first come first served basis you cannot order or reserve. Please bring something to take your hens home in a cardboard box or pet carrier is ideal.
