Barling Poultry Southend-on-sea
Barling Poultry keep free range poultry and waterfowl in Essex. We are keen to support people to keep some hens at home, at the expense of ‘battery farms’.
Most people nowadays realise why supermarkets can sell eggs and chicken so cheaply - because of intensive factory farming. This type of farming system means hens spend their very short lives confined in small cages with lots of other hens. EU law means each hen has 550cm squared floor space (less than a sheet of A4 paper!).
Nothing beats the taste of your very own freshly laid eggs, and keeping chickens at home and raising chicks is really fun! They have fantastic little characters, are generally easy to care for, require little maintenance and are just nice to have around.Poutry for Sale
