Point of Lay Chickens are 15 weeks and no younger, they will usually start to lay from about 20-22 weeks. We believe it is best to obtain your hens before they begin to lay so that the laying cycle is not upset by the change of home.
The chickens we have for sale are hybrid pullets that have been bred from pure breeds like the Light Sussex, Rhode Island Red, Maran, Leghorn and Barred Plymouth Rock. They have been bred for their egg laying abilities. Our hens are "Free Range" reared here on the farm and have the freedom to roam outside from a young age which helps to create a much healthier and stronger bird but it does mean that if its been raining you may need your Wellies!!
When you come to the farm to pick up your chickens please try to bring either a strong cardboard box or a pet carrier.
