We run a small mixed flock of chickens, keeping eight to 10 ISA Browns for eggs and 20-30 rare breed Scots Greys for breeding. We’re focusing on utility for our Scots Greys so our breeding programme aims to re-develop their original dual-purpose focus on eggs and meat.
We do NOT have hatching eggs or chickens for sale at this point, as we’re concentrating on developing our own flock to build numbers up to about 40 good quality Scots Grey hens. This is not likely to change for some time as the small gene pool and small numbers make it difficult to breed sufficient quality hens for our own needs, much less anyone else’s.
