They can lay up to 300 eggs a year! Please note pullets are sexed with 85% accuracy and that Barred Plymouth Rock are the most difficult to sex.

    These delightful birds (a personal favourite on the farm) are known for their green, yes, you read that right, green eggs. Their feathers have a huge range of colours, making them fairly diverse. They originated in America in the 1970s and lay around 180 green eggs a year. Available unsexed only.
    Cochins were brought over from China to Britain in the 1850s under the name "Pekin." The Golden-Laced Cochin is an extremely docile, friendly breed, that loves to brood. These chickens make excellent pets, as they are quite gentle with small children. Bantams lay, at most, 100 small white eggs a year. Available unsexed only. **Please note: bantams will be vaccinated for coccidiosis, but will NOT be vaccinated for Marek's, due to the size of the chicks at hatching.**
