Poultry Breeder

Poultry Breeder / Supplier in Gloucestershire ref: 10385

We are based on a smallholding overlooking the Bristol Channel in Gloucestershire, and have a passion for pure breed birds, breeding both Indian Runner ducks, and Buff Orpington Chickens.

The ducks are and fawn Indian Runners - all hand reared here on the farm our fantastic show quality parents.

We have carefully reared all of our birds in small numbers, and they all have such great characters due to the regular handling, so have made great pets for us, and they are all free ranging around the farm.

The parent stock are pure bred from Apricot, so all colourings from that gene group, rather than mixed parentage as you will sometimes find with people that keep mixed flocks.

In addition to this, as the parents are all show quality birds, as you can see the body formation is perfect, and a great example of the breed.

We farm an egg a day from each of our ducks, and they are probably the tastiest golden yolks I have ever had.

These really are a great breed of duck, and unlike call ducks are so much quieter and cleaner - allowing them to be kept as back yard birds with no pond needed - just access to clean drinking water.

The Buff Orpington chickens again are fantastic - they are a very friendly and bombproof variety of bird, giving a large egg per day, and keeping your garden free of pests!

Our birds are available at £35 each, or as a family group Trio for £80 - we also generally have younger birds also available.

Please don't hesitate to give us a call to check availability.
