Keeping, housing and feeding garden hens

The three best poultry breeds to keep in your garden for eggs

Rhode Island Red is a good layer off 220 large brown eggs a  year. 

Light Sussex a attractive and productive bird they lay up to 200 light brown eggs a year.  

Marans are Good layers of large dark brown eggs, the Maran hen will lay up to 200 eggs in a year.

Rhode Island Red

The Rhode Island Red is a good layer of up to 220 large brown eggs in their first year.  They are  raised for meat and eggs, and  are one of my top three hens for keeping in the garden because of their egg laying abilities and hardiness. 
The Rhode Island Reds feathers are rust to dark red with yellow feet and reddish brown beaks. If raised properly they are affectionate hens, coming when called  like a pet dog.
Light Sussex 
The light Sussex has a white body with a black tail and black wing tips. Its neck is white, striped with black and has a very striking appearance. Making it both a attractive and productive bird, laying up to 200 light brown eggs a year.
its an alert, docile breed that will adapt to free range or being kept in a chicken run in the garden. It is confidant and friendly  in the presence of humans. 
The breed sometimes goes broody and is the mother hen I use for natural hatching of fertile eggs. 
Good layers of  large dark brown eggs, the Maran hen will  lay up to 200 eggs in a year.  They can extend the laying season with pullets coming into lay during January and often still laying lovely dark eggs into Winter.
The Cuckoo maran is my favourite and in my top three garden hens, with barred feathers giving a black and white speckled appearance, they are generally quiet and docile adapting to free ranging or a garden run.  Marans are  tough and disease-resistant and because they were originally bred in the marshy areas of France can cope with our damp English weather.

Point of lay Chickens are ready for sale at 15 weeks old and usually start to lay from about 20 weeks. Buying point of lay hens a few weeks before they begin to lay gives the young hens time to settle in and doesn't disrupt the laying cycle.

The chickens we have for sale are pullets that have been hatched and reared here in our own garden, We sometimes have chickens that have been hatched naturally by the mother hen. 

We hatch old fashioned pure breeds for sale that are easy to keep, either running loose in the garden or in suitable chicken runs. 

Light Sussex lay creamy brown eggs, Rhode Island Reds lay a brown egg and Marans lay attractive dark brown speckled eggs. A mix of all three breeds produce a nice mixed basket of eggs. 

Laying hens offered for sale, are reared outside, so are hardy and suited to keeping in domestic gardens.
