COVID 19 update
As we sell pets, feed and pet supplies, the government website states that we can remain open for customers needing essential items. All sales
are by appointment only and are completed with no contact, see below for details.
We have new pullets available every 4 weeks and all of our April and May hens have now all been reserved. We are now
collating a June list.
From experience we know that people often shop around and some don't let us know until we call them to arrange collection! We are therefore
asking our customers to *** let us know if they source hens elsewhere*** so that we can reallocate their reserved hens to other customers on the waiting list. Please, please remember to tell us if
you find hens elsewhere, no worries, it will allow us to manage our other customers' expectations.
If you would like to be put on the June reserve list and will be able to collect them in the first week of June please email us on
firstname.lastname@example.org. We will start off with all 11 breeds but if you're lower down on the list, the choice of breed may be limited but all of our hens are excellent
Collection of hens, feed, supplies and payment
Importantly, our daughter is disabled and has increased seizures with high temperatures and illness so we MUST keep a big distance from all
customers as we cannot risk her catching this from customers, through us. We are taking this very seriously and we expect any visitors to our home/farm to do the same, in accordance with current
At the time of writing, when hens are here, we will start working down the reservations list and making appointments and arranging payment
in the order that people phoned and reserved the hens.
We will invoice you ahead of collection via email and we will require a BACS payment with cleared funds in advance (we
don't have a card machine and don't want to handle cash). If for any reason you are unable to come after making payment, we will reimburse you in full.
In order for us to be able to keep a safe distance from our customers, you will not be able to choose the individual hens (we are really
sorry as we know that this is an important part of the process of buying/choosing hens for you) and, depending where you are on the order list, choice may be limited on the breeds available. Only one
person is to collect the hens from our farm/get out of your car please.
We do not want to have any contact with your boxes or crates (no offence but there's no point doing electronic payment if we then handle
your pet carriers) so we have purchased new boxes which are comfortably large enough for up to 3 hens (these boxes are already here and are in quarantine). We will
catch hens when you arrive, while you wait in your car, and will show you the hens by holding them up to the car window before we put them into your box.
We will then leave the hens in the boxes next to the boot of your car so that you can get out and put the hens in your boot yourself while
we stand back! We have bought the boxes in bulk and have searched for the cheapest suitable ones we can get. They are £1.50 inc VAT each (which is less than they cost us) and can fit up to 3 hens
comfortably. We will add this cost to your invoice.
We are already being asked if we "could just use our box", "just use our crate" etc. We are sorry but we cannot do this, no
I will wear gloves for handling hens/boxes, and I don't touch my face when wearing working gloves, which should offer you comfort that we
are being as safe as we possibly can.
We are really sorry that we wont be able to give you our usual personalised chatty service. There is a lot of advice on this website
here especially about how to introduce new hens to an established flock but if you can't find the info you need, phone or email
It goes without saying that you must not come to our home/farm if you have any symptoms of coronavirus. We need to protect our daughter and
our family. Thank you for your understanding.
Thank you to all of our customers for their patience and understanding during these worrying times.
