Rare & Traditional Breed Prices
All our chicks (Chickens, Ducks & Guinea Fowl) are reared outdoors (when old enough to go outside) on a high quality diet and this is reflected in the price, we could rear them more intensively to save costs however we believe that their welfare must come first.
Hatching Eggs £1.50
Day Old Chicks (unsexed) £5.00
6 Week old Chicks £15.00
P.O.L Pullets 16 Weeks £35.00
Birds between 6 and 16 weeks old are priced on an incremental basis depending on their age.
The age at which chicks can be sexed varies according to breed, most breeds we keep we can tell by 6 weeks - other breeds can keep us guessing a bit longer - we will be happy to advise on the earliest that we are able to offer a guarantee as to sex by breed.
