COVID 19 - we remain open by appointment
We have new pullets available every 4 weeks but due to coronavirus and the demand rising incredibly, all of our August
birds are reserved and we are putting together a waiting list for September birds.
TO BE ADDED TO THE WAITING LIST, PLEASE EMAIL US on firstname.lastname@example.org with the number of hens required and your
telephone number. Please read the important details below for information on how collection of hens will happen.
PLEASE CHECK ON THIS WEBSITE AND ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE
Collection of hens, feed, supplies and payment
Importantly, our daughter has epilepsy and has increased seizures with high temperatures and illness so 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.
One month before the hens are ready, we will email all customers on the
reservations list to see whether they still require hens. One week before, we will telephone customers to make appointments and arrange payment. This will be done in the order that people phoned and
reserved the hens to give those people who reserved the hens first to get an opportunity to come and collect their hens first so, depending where you are on the reservation list, choice may be
limited on the breeds available.
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 as phone signal is so poor in our yard and we are not handling cash).
Only one person is to collect the hens from our farm/get out of your car. In light of new government guidance, you will once again be
able to choose your individual hens while I catch them in the hen house for you. We have roped an area off outside the chicken house to keep you at a safe distance from us while we catch hens. Please
remember to wear your mask.
We cannot have any contact with your boxes or crates (there's no point doing electronic payment if we then handle your pet carriers) so we have
purchased pet carrier cardboard boxes which are comfortably large enough for up to 3 hens. 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.
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, please phone or email us.
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.

Here at Weeke Farm, Spreyton, Devon, we have an exciting selection of fully vaccinated, point of lay hybrid chickens for sale - click on Point of lay chickens for photos and descriptions on each type of hybrid and information on keeping hens.
Our Shop is fully stocked with all the equipment you need for your chickens including feeders, drinkers, bedding, care products and feed.
We are a family business and we are proud of the personalised service that we offer to all of our customers. We can
spend about half an hour with you teaching you about how to look after your hens, if you'd like us to, while you mingle amongst the flock of hens and choose your favourites. Dont worry, we will
catch them for you! Alternatively, we can have them caught ready for you on arrival, if you'd prefer. We're open all year round, 7 days a week
(including weekends and evenings), whatever time of day that's suitable to you - so long as it's light! Please give us a call on 01363 82795 (between 8am and 9pm) to arrange
coming to choose your hens. Please do telephone us first, don't just turn up, as we are likely to be out working on the farm with no
mobile phone reception!
We would love to help you get started if you are totally new to looking after chickens and we can provide you with everything you need for
your hens to be happy in their new home. We also enjoy catching up with our existing customers! We make every effort to have happy hens and satisfied
