Our Hens produce lovely Free Range Eggs and are fed on locally grown grain plus quality Layers Pellets. These eggs are very much in demand, and we often have none left for ourselves !.
The Poultry flock as of Nov 2012 is made up of Black Rock Hens & Pullets, Lohman Brown Hens & 3 Welsummers which lay dark brown eggs. Also we have Light and Buff Sussex Hens plus Red & White and Buff & White Wyandotte Bantams along with a Gold Silkie and a White Silkie called Snowball.
"Spotty" is our black and white Bantam who strolls and flies all over the property and lays in the most unusual places, one of which was my car trailer loaded with branches, which when I unloaded in Dundee I found 8 eggs with only one broken !.
Currently I am rearing some Pekin Bantams hatched in September.
All the stock are very friendly and always looking for a treat, and will welcome any spare bread you have.
We also incubate eggs and quite often have young chicks on hand.
We usually have a surplus of Fantail Doves which are for sale, and have a local retired Carpenter who makes Dovecotes to order at a very reasonable price for anyone wishing to keep these lovely birds. Our birds are very much aware of the Buzzards & Hawks which is a good thing when initially stocking.
