We supply hatching eggs which can be either collected or posted.
Hatching eggs cost from £1 per egg plus p + p of approx £3.25 per 6 eggs
Hatching eggs are posted individually wrapped in bubble wrap with an egg box also wrapped in bubble wrap.
This protects the eggs as well as preventing them from overheating unlike the majority of suppliers who use polystyrene egg boxes.
Poultry we stock
My personal favourites and what initiated my interest in poultry;
Araucana; Black and Red
Araucana’s originate from Peru and are famous for laying blue eggs, of which they will lay between 150 and 200 a year.
Although at times flighty they are incredibly hardy birds .
We keep large blacks and bantam reds. The red colour in araucana’s is a new colour which is based on the colour of the Rhode Island Red.
To date Oliver’s Poultry is the only breeder of this new strain.
Although the Serama is an ancient breed it is a relatively new breed to the UK. It is the smallest breed of chicken in the world
Out of the A, B and C classes of Serama size, we keep the smallest class of Serama.
They are good layers often laying throughout the winter months when other birds have stopped. The eggs although small are off unbeatable quality.
In some countries they are kept as house pets due to their placid
temperament and quiet nature.
Rhode Island Red:
The ‘Rhodie’ hailing from Rhode Island, USA, is famous for its deep red colour and its egg laying ability. Before the creation of hybrids it was the first choice for the commercial poultry keeper.
We supply large fowl and bantam RIR’s. Bantam RIR’s make excellent backyard birds as they are productive and also ornate with their rich red colouring.
The large fowl RIR we supply descend from John Leach’s flock of utility RIR created over 75 years ago; Unlike other utility rhode island reds they still retain their deep red colouring.
The pekin bantam is probably the most popular of all the bantam breeds. With its heavily feathered feet they tend to be less destructive in the garden and their docile nature makes them popular with children.
They are average layers of small white eggs. I have always found Pekins to make excellent mothers.
Silkies are renowned for their brooding abilities, and their distinctive cotton wool feathers. They are a light breed laying a reasonable amount of eggs.
Often a silkie hen will go from rearing one brood of chicks to sitting another set immediately.
The Sussex we supply are a utility strain from the Czech republic.
The Light Sussex is a traditional English breed of chicken bred for meat and egg production.
They are popular with many poultry keepers because they look traditional. They are large birds capable of laying over 200 eggs a year.
All the birds we sell are priced at £17.50 each, trios at £40.
Marans are a French breed of chicken which like the light Sussex were originally bred for meat and egg production.
The strain of Cuckoo Marans we keep is a utility strain capable of producing 200 eggs a year.
Marans are hardy birds and good free rangers.
