rare breed chicken opportunity?Garden Hens in Cheshire, from whom I've bought hens in the past, are ending their rare breed chicken business. I noticed on their website today that they are asking if anyone might be interested in taking it over. They were I think also selling breeding groups for anyone interested in rare breed conservation.
I don't know anything about the business or breeding side of it myself, but thought I'd mention it on here because the Vorwerks and Barnevelders I bought from them a few years ago were really nice-looking, healthy, strong birds - who laid as well as Jackie, the owner, had said they would - i.e. not egg-machines but useful.
I know Vorwerks in particular can be hard to come by. I loved having them - beautiful birds and very alert and curious.
They are selling hatching eggs of various breeds this year.
