Large fowl Buff Orpington hens hatched 16th May 2017 so soon to be at laying age. The hens are priced singly, but there is a minimum quantity of 2 for each sale.
We have sold most of the hens so only 3 hens are available for sale. If you already have a small flock, we can offer an unrelated cockerel for £15. From our experience cockerels will need access to at least 5 hens to prevent damaging your hens with his constant advances.
Buff Orpingtons are lovely curious and friendly birds. Due to their mild nature that are frequently chosen as family pets, but if you are interested in these hens as livestock they are great dual purpose bird and normally lay around 200 eggs per year. They are heavy feathered so are very cold tolerant and unlike hybrid egg layers will continue laying through the colder winter months.
