  • What We Think

    The Blacktail in an up and coming favorite, maybe due to it's recognition as 'the Waitrose laying hen.' It's a very attractive breed, with a chestnut plumage and a black tipped tail and flashes of back on the wings and neck. It has a lovely temperament but can get a bit greedy maybe due to the large amount of rich flavored eggs they produce. They are a great first time hen they love human attention and being spoilt. A great productive pet.

 I wanted to start keeping chickens in my gardens and I wanted some help and advice about what I should buy. The customer service was excellent, they were so helpful and told me everything I needed to know. I couldn\'t have asked for more. I buy all of my stuff from here and I have never had any problems with anything. Excellent service.

 Always bet on Black(tail) We've had so many lovely hens from you over 11 years of keeping hens in the garden, but the Columbian Blacktails are my favourites for their wonderful temperaments. Each one has been a good natured, healthy, productive hen - great layers and great pets. We've never bought a bird from you that wasn't in wonderful condition, which is why we keep coming back, despite a long commute to do so.
