PURE BREEDS

If you are looking for hens that look awesome, give reasonable supply of eggs and have long life span, pure breeds are for you! They are docile and friendly with more plumage and weight. Most pure breeds will lay in the summer and stop laying for the winter, unlike hybrids will give you a constant supply of eggs all year round.
Pure breeds generally live and lay longer than hybrids, but it depends on the living conditions. At Glendevon Poultry we stock around 10 different colours and breeds most of the year, so you will have a wide variety to choose from.

How our hens are reared

 

Our hens live in outdoor pens with plenty of grass available for them to free range, located in the beautiful countryside. They are raised to high welfare standards and we are happy to answer any questions you may have about the hens. They also undergo a vaccination programme (shown in table below) to fight any diseases or illnesses.

Collecting

When coming to collect your hens it is ideal if you can bring a pet carrier or a large cardboard box with you to transport your hens home in. Please make sure the box or cage has ventilation so they can breath! It is also a good idea to put some straw or shavings in the bottom to keep your hens comfortable on their journey home.
If you haven't got a suitable carrier then don't worry as we do have some boxes here. If you are looking for particular breeds of hens then please call or email us to check availability to avoid disappointment. If we have sold out of a particular breed we will keep you updated on when the next batch comes in, which should be within a couple of weeks. We want you to be happy with your hens and we will always aim to provide the best service we can.
