If you are looking for a daily breakfast egg: Hybrid hens will be your favorite choice. They lay nearly all year round. The egg production is the biggest difference to the pure breed hens, they don’t become broody and even in the darkest winter times you have a good chance to get one or the other egg every day.
We have a great variety of different Hybrids for sale – all year round. Please give us a ring or send an email before you want to see or collect any birds to avoid disappointment if your favorites are sold out.
Our Hybrids received a full commercial vaccination program, which you can see here. We are proud of the quality of birds we can provide and put a lot of effort in their health and welfare. One of our aims is to get the hens used to humans, other animals, different noises; they are out and about in the farm yard and we teach them to come back home for a treat, to make it easy for our customers to tame them.
