PLEASE NOTE – when Coops are advertised for sale they state the amount of hens that can sleep in the coop NOT the amount of hens that can be kept in the run! Minimum run area per hen is 1 Square Metre or 3 Square feet.

When you are adding to your flock remember that the new girls will be bullied by the existing flock so if you are adding to your flock you should add the same or more girls than you already have unless you have a completely separate run and coop or you are able to split the pen so that they can get to know each other gradually.

Please worm your new girls with Flubenvet in 6 weeks then 3 monthly, and powder your girls for mites every 4 weeks.

Our Hybrids and Bantams are all Fully Vaccinated.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bantams

We  have some Bantam girls in stock now, they are available by appointment only, if you would like to book and appointment to view them please attach a photo of your Coop and Run to Caroline at info@surreypoultry.com. Bantams are sensitive loveable souls that lay small eggs seasonally, they do require more attention than larger birds and are best suited to the Omlet range of housing, their housing needs to be kept extremely clean and mite free. They are best kept separately from larger birds as they are easily bullied especially when they are young. We have Pekins, Silkies, Polands and Padoue, the Pekins are by far the most intelligent of the group, the Silkies, Polands and Padoues require a great deal of patience learning the way to bed and any type of steps!  The Bantams are £40 each, we do not sell single birds. They are Fully Vaccinated.

Silkies available in Black, White and Gold Partridge (28 weeks)

Pekins available in Black, Lavender and Gold Partridge (15 weeks)

Polands available in Black/White and Grey(Blue)/White (24 weeks) (Only 2 Grey/White left now)

Padoues are Gold Laced (24 weeks, Fully grown these hens are larger than Bantams but smaller than Hybrids) – Padoues Sold Out

Bird Flu Update 19/03/21

Finally some good news!!

19 March 2021: The risk of avian influenza to both wild and kept birds has reduced to ‘medium’. The Avian Influenza Prevention Zone (AIPZ) requiring enhanced biosecurity will remain in force but Wednesday 31 March 2021 will be the last day poultry and other captive birds will need to be housed (housing restrictions end 23:59 31 March 2021). Bird gatherings are still prohibited. High standards of biosecurity remain essential as infection may still be present in the environment.

See the AIPZ section for further details of the measures that apply in the AIPZ and our guidance on How to prepare for when your free-range birds can be let outside again (PDF, 69.4KB, 3 pages).
