We rear our hens from day-old chicks. They are used to daily contact with humans from this age, and later on they mix with dogs, cows and a very large horse! As a result they are lovely docile birds, and adapt well to their new homes.

Our hens are free-ranging, healthy, well-grown birds and are all good egg-laying hybrids. All the above hybrids are £16 each at point of lay.

We also hatch our own 'Kingsbrook Dollies' which are cross-breeds and look great. We only have these available for sale occasionally as we keep most of them for ourselves. The price of these varies.

We hatch and rear quail for egg laying. These birds are very easy to keep and lay lots of small but tasty egggs. They are available at various ages and as hatching eggs.

If you would like to know more, please see our Facebook page: Kingsbrook Farm where you can see pictures of the chickens (and other animals) and see the way they live.

    "What Chickens mean to me"

    by Forum Members..

    The most surprising and rewarding thing that the hens have done for this family is bring a smile and interest to my elderly housebound mum, she hates the winter and gets the blues but when the girls are out roaming round the garden it gives her a lot of amusement, which is great. She loves their frilly knickers and the way they stand on 1 leg for ages.
    Alex and I love pets and used to keep horses until 9 years ago and strangely enough keeping the chooks have sort of filled the space the horses left both are so relaxing to watch going about their daily routines.
    They are friendly,colourful and so far we are finding them easy to look after even in the snow. The fact that they are so generous with the daily presents we get is a bonus. In 2 short months we have become truly hooked and life won't be the same again. Annie
