Hybrid point of lay pullets

 

My chicks  are vaccinated  as day olds against MAREKS desiese. They arrive as a mixture of chicks sometimes up to eight different breeds, and are all brooded and reared together. This way all the different breeds bond at an early age and will all get on as adults. After the six week brooding period the chicks  are reared outside in large grass paddocks.  All the pullets are wormed, they are well handled and perched trained, making them friendly birds, ideal for family pets in the garden. 
This method of rearing is far more labour intensive and costly but the end result is well worth it. I pride myself on my rearing methods and giving my chicks a happy healthy start in life.

NEW FENTON ROSE £20.00 each
 
In sepmtember 2010 my chick supplier gave me a dozen pretty little growers to try saying they were a new blue egg laying hybrid he had been developing. In return I had to rear them on and think of a name that would suit the bird. Their feather colour reminded me of peach roses and keeping the connection with the Fenton Blue I suggested calling them The Fenton Rose.
Her feather colour is creamy white with peachy flecks to the neck and chest, still having the tufty hair do and a calm freindly nature. 95% will lay a deeper colour blue to blue/green or olive egg, the remiander will lay cream or brown egg.
