Hybrid Chickens

As a general rule hybrid chickens combine the qualities of two or more pure breed hens to create a perfect all round chicken.

Hybrid chickens are justifiably popular because they lay consistent numbers of delicious eggs, are very easy to look after , they usually tame easily and therefore handle easier, so are ideal pets for children. All of our hybrids are vaccinated and ideal for beginners.

Better still they are cheaper than pure breeds, and readily available in quantity.

All breeds are available for collection now.
