The Trio comprises the Chalk Hill Chestnut Ranger that lays a chestnut coloured egg, the Chalk Hill Blue that lays a pale blue egg and the Chalk Hill Pearl that lays a pearl white egg.
Although all three birds have been bred for high yields in free range environments, they're equally suitable for keeping in domestic back gardens or for small commercial niche market laying flocks as they're very adaptable.
If the management and conditions are correct you can expect fifteen eggs per week from the Trio and all three will lay steadily through the winter months. The cost of three birds together is £65 and individual birds cost £25.
Shown here are five of the twelve standard hybrid laying hens that we breed at Chalk Hill. Additionally we rear Golden Speckled, Partridge Leghorn, Rhode Island Red, Splash, Tricolor Leghorn and White Leghorn breeds. All our birds have been developed from a mix to maximise egg production and all are professionally reared ensuring a vigorous and hardy bird.
For the first time poultry keeper any of our hybrids would be the perfect choice as they're robust and easy to care for; soon becoming tame and easy to handle. All our birds will adapt to a garden environment as they're equally happy roaming free or enclosed in a run.
The White Leghorn lays pure white eggs, The Bluebelle, Speckledy and Sussex Star lay beige eggs. The Partridge Leghorn and Tricolor Leghorn lay cream eggs. The Golden Speckled, Rhode Island Red and Splash lay light brown eggs and the Amber Star, Columbian Blacktail and Rhode Ranger lay brown eggs. All our birds are vacinated according to a comprehensive programme and they're also regularly wormed. Hybrids cost £17 per bird. Trade enquires are welcomed; we offer attractive discounts and birds can be delivered nationwide at an additional cost. Please note that we will be posting pictures of all our hybrids in the next few months.
