entirely satisfied with your purchase and consider we offer good

However if for any

The prices quoted on this website do not
include delivery. We operate a ‘round robin’ delivery service

Responsibility Passes on Delivery or
Chickens and eggs are
living things and susceptible to external influences over which we have
no control, once they leave our premises or are delivered. As such
purchasers accept full responsibility for their live purchases once
delivered. However in the unlikely event of illness we will consider the
circumstances and at our option and on an ex-gratia basis may replace
the purchase. We are reasonable people and wish to develop a large
customer base with a good reputation.
We accept all forms
of electronic payment through ‘PayPal’ and by conventional means
although we reserve the right to clear cheques before dispatching goods
or livestock. Should we dispatch goods before clearing payment it is
understood between the buyer and seller that the property in the goods
remains with us the seller until payment is made in full.
The cost of returning
goods is to be paid by the buyer should this be required.
Any advice provided
is done so in good faith in order to help those interested in chickens
but we need to state that we do not accept any responsibility for the
consequences of such advice. On medical matters we strongly recommend
you consult with a qualified veterinary practitioner.
Eggs start to lose
fertility six days after being laid and rapidly so after ten days. We
dispatch eggs up to four days for next day delivery. It is therefore
imperative that you ‘set’ - incubate the eggs as soon as possible after
receipt. Delay will reduce the number of eggs that hatch and we do not
guarantee fertility in any event.
Please ensure you
study the advice given in the incubator section of this website and
follow manufacturers instructions of your own machine. We can provide a
broody hen or bantam with eggs, the next productive and lowest cost

In the event the goods have to be returned to us it is agreed that
you will pay the cost of return which may not be the cost originally
charged for delivery as the originally cost of delivery may have
been a shared cost with other customers in your area.
