All the above hens live out Free Range. They live in "chicken village" a collection of smaller houses, low stocking density and are free to make their own decisions in life.  They have plenty of fresh grass, trees etc... to keep them busy in a varied habitat. 

ALL our hens are fed GARVO Feeds from DAY 1 here, because we believe "You get out what you put in"  we have done this for the past 6 years and continue to do so.

 IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING PURCHASING POULTRY ~ please take a moment

We do not pre-box hens prior to purchase, but prefer to allow our customers to choose their own hens, from in their hen houses. We leave them shut in on Saturdays in order to be able to catch them, they are free range the rest of the time.

We inspect with you prior to boxing up for transport home. We do this to ensure you are happy with your hens BEFORE placing them in your transport container to take home. Due to the nature of LIVE creatures, we can not accept back hens once they have left the property, as we have no control over the environment the hen enters into once they have left our premises. Hence, it is important that you inspect the birds you have chosen PRIOR to placing in your transport container, by placing the birds in such container, you are accepting them as suitable for your requirements, and accepting responsibility for their ongoing needs and welfare.

Any issue one may have with a hen needs to be reported immediately within the 24 hour period, on either 01757 638925 or 0795 6060 228.

You are purchasing a living, breathing hen, who has specific requirements.

It is your responsibility to the hen to ensure you have a good basic knowledge of her needs, the correct environment and observe the quarantine period if adding to an existing flock (see below), also access to a vet who treats poultry.

We will help you in terms of 'aftersales' but please bear in mind we are not vets, nor can we, or will we, diagnose over the phone/email/text.

If there is any way we can help post-purchase we will do our best, but please bear in mind that we can not spend hours on the phone, email or text everyday all day. We try our best to help where we can.

For matters of health, please make your vet the first point of call.

We love to keep in touch with our customers, and more than welcome updates and especially names of hens!

NEW BIRDS SHOULD ALWAYS BE KEPT ISOLATED FROM EXISTING FLOCKS FOR 2-3 WEEKS AFTER ARRIVING HOME. THIS IS A SUFFICIENT PERIOD OF TIME RECOMMENDED BY POULTRY VETS.
