  3. I bought 7 chickens back in August 2014 and Janette was so helpful with advice on our coop and flight and the birds have been very happy. We get around 6 eggs a day from them too even through the winter!

  5. I have been from top to bottom on your interesting and informative advice . I am a relatively new chicken keeper , but simply am completely sucked in . I adore my sablepoots and hope when you reply to my quest that I will shortly make a visit and bring some home to roam freely on our paddock with our other feathered friends .
    For now thank you for allowing me to have a share of your chicken garden

  7. Picked 5 older ladies up yesterday including 2 cream legbars. All 5 mixed in with my existing hens after only a bit of arguing. Had my 1st blue egg yesterday. You have a fantastic set up and genuinely care for the hens you sell. I will definately be back.

  9. Hi Jeannette just to let you know that the 3 sablepoots I bought from you last Thursday are happy and settled. My daughter has fallen in love with them and finds them much easier to handle than our hybrids. They are called William, Maggie and Frannie. We have had 3 eggs so far and hope in the future to try some in the incubator. We will be back soon for the Fenton Rose's and maybe some Pekins and Silkies!!!!!

  14. Hi
    Just to let you know the Bluebell and Blue Fenton I bought last weekend are settling in well. Now named Josephine and Daphne: after two other drama queens from the film Some Like It Hot. They're enjoying their first day of free ranging in the garden today. No eggs yet but Daphne was practicing her 'I've laid an egg' call this morning. Thanks for a lovely visit to see all your hens and thanks for the two lovely ladies. Just weighing up where I can build a run for some of those cute bantams now.

  15. Hi Jeanette, just letting you know the girls have settled well, my grandaughter is really hands on and quite the mother hen herself, demanding and getting a cuddle every day off each of them, making them wait fo there grapes is proving a little more difficult though, see you in the spring for my ducklings if not before.

  16. Im Impressed with the quality of your birds - a decent light sussex is few and far between these days.

    Would be interested in some hatching eggs when its required for new blood...

  17. Hi
    Just to let you know that the 3 ladies we bought from you last saturday are settling in well already They quickly learnt where their home was and as you told us they would,they take themselves off to bed at dusk each night and then we lock their pop hole. They are very funny and entertaining to watch and helping us to weed our garden lol. Our grandaughters have named them so now Black star is called Belle, Sussex is Snow white and Speckledy is Cinderella as you can see grandaughters love princesses. Hubby says he is not calling these names out in public lol. Thanks for all your help and advice.

  18. Hi Jeanette, a big thankyou for all the time you spent helping us to choose our 11 new pekins. They are all gorgeous. The Lavender cockeril knows he was singled out for his beauty and is strutting around like king of the castle. Calling him Lord Lav. Just got to find Lady Lavender!See you next year for some Hamburgs.
    best wishes Lorraine

  23. Thank you for all your superb advice when we came to see you last Saturday. Our older bird whom we inherited with hronic scaly leg mite is now looking a whole lot better thanks to your direction and our other girls are fully protected.
    I thought you might like to know that George and Mildred have settled in with our other birds, Gemma and Betty superbly and are now enjoying their new surroundings.
    We are now in the process of extending our coop so that we can accomodate a couple of Fenton Blues, names still to be decided.

  29. Hi,

    The girls seem happy at their new home, they all have names now HENrietta (I couldn\'t resist that one!), Blossom, Roxy and Ruby. They\'re becoming more relaxed with our contact each day and even pecked the dog on the nose when he got too close to the pen, so hopefully the dog has the message \"Don\'t mess with us girls or else!\"

    I\'m still on edge when they come in to the garden as I have this vision of them fluttering off in to next doors garden.

    So far so good........

  31. Hi Janette,

    Thank you for all your help and advice. Nothing was too much trouble for you, and you made us relaxed about having our first hens.

    The brown link and Fenton Blue's are really friendly and have made our life happy ; we love them.

    They are all laying now and the eggs taste wonderful. I'm glad we live close and will come and see you soon.

  34. Hi Janette
    Just wanted to let you know that our amber and brown links have settled in really well.

    They are really enjoying our garden especially the bark chippings which they scratch through for hours.

    We had no problems putting them to bed, just as you promised they sorted themselves out all we had to do was close the door.

    Thank-you for all your advice on Saturday. Your a star.

  35. Hello Janette
    Just to let you know that the Crewe girls have settled in well. We are all impressed by how friendly the hens are. Each morning they peck on the patio window whilst we are having breakfast. They have been no trouble. We have let them roam about the garden whilst we are in and put them in the run when out.
    They have started to take themselves to bed at dusk.

    The children love them and Sam gets up to let them out of the coup in the morning. Jamie likes feeding them too.

    Thanks for all your help and advice. We did send an email with photographs of the hens.

  36. Thanks Jeanette for another 3 lovely girls (2 Fentons and an Amber) to go with the 3 we bought last August. They are lovely and are settling in well. As usual you are very professional and show so much care and concern for your hens. Thanks again

  37. Hi Janette,
    Thought i'd just let you know that my two girls have spent their first night with us and seem very happy. They are out and about and although the other two were curious and there has been the odd peck nothing major has happened. Lola (the amber link) is the quietest and Hannah( the brown link) is becoming her big sis following her every where she goes. Thankyoui for your help with choosing them. I will be in touch to let you know how they are doing.

  38. We had five lovely hens from you just over a month ago, two copperblacks, a bluebelle, a light sussex and an amber. I am thrilled to bits with them. So far we\'ve had 10 eggs, mostly from the copperblacks and I can identify their eggs easily. The others are harder. Any clues? I can\'t thank you enough for the hens which have been a wonderful addition to our family.

  39. Hi again Janette,
    Just a quick update to let you know Harriet (the Copper Black) we had three weeks ago has laid her first egg, it was so exciting! The others are due to start laying around christmas will let you know!!!

  40. Hello, we came to you yesterday and picked up two copper blacks (Delilah and Daphne) and one white Sussex (Esmerelda)!just wanted to say thank you and we have just received our first egg! I think it is from Esmerelda as it is a small light brown one. The ladies have settled in very well and have been roaming the garden all day!.Thanks for all your advice.

  41. Hi janette just wanted to let you know our three chickens Lottie, Harriet and Sasha have settled in great. We came two weeks ago in the rain with my teenage daughter who absolutely adores them. They are really comical and just as you said one is the boss (Harriet) one is the clown (Sasha) and one is affectionate (Lottie) but they are one of the family now and wander around outside and in as if they have lived here all their lives.We love them all,they are brilliant thank you for all your advice it was very helpful.

  42. Hi Janette,

  43. Hi Janette,
    Just wanted to let you know that our four chooks have settled in perfectly! They are a super addition to our family and get on famously with the cat and dog :) Thank you for all the advice you gave us. Hope to see you in the near future. I can see already how it can become addictive!
    Kind regards

  44. Hi Janette,

    I just wanted to say a huge "thank you" to you for all the help and advice you gave me when choosing my chickens.

    I picked up "my girls" last week, and they have settled in very well - pecking order already established, with very little fuss! They are so funny to watch and absloutely go mad for "spaghetti worms" Great entertainment.

    I look forward to my first batch of eggs as my reward!!

    I certainly recommend you to anyone who is thinking of having chickens!!

    Kind regards,

    Lizzie George and Francesca Burda
