BLACK ROCK HENS,


The Genuine Black rock from the Muirfield Hatchery.

(From Peter Siddons original flock now owned by Eddie Lovett)

orders now being taken for the next delivery in September 2015.


WE ARE NOW AGENTS FOR THE BLACK ROCK HENS FOR THE GLOUCESTER AND SURROUNDING AREA

Well known for being a really hardy bird that will lay 320 eggs in the first year and continue on laying for  4 years or more

EDDIE HAS BIRDS STILL LAYING AT 6 YEARS OLD.

I have known these birds live until they are 11 years old.

The chicks are vaccinated at day old for Mareks disease but do not have any other vaccinations during rearing.

These are really strong birds but do not take challenges from vaccinated hybrid birds easily.

Therefore it is better for these birds to be kept separately as a flock on their own or kept away from other hybrids for at least 4 weeks until they are used to your system and the challenges they will face.

I AM ABLE TO GET DAY OLD CHICKS SEXED IF YOU PREFER  TO REAR YOUR OWN,

Please ring me for details.    07709933064

The birds are available at day old, 8 weeks old (off heat) and 16-18 weeks.

These birds generally start to lay when they are between 22 and 24 weeks old.

THE HENS SHOULD ONLY BE FED A HYBRID LAYERS DIET of 17% PROTEIN  PELLETS  WHEN IN LAY.

AND MIXED POULTRY GRIT.  ANY EXTRAS SHOULD BE GREENSTUFF, LIKE CABBAGES, ETC.

WHEN FED CORN THEY WILL GET FAT AND GO OFF LAY. 

Hens are crafty and wait for corn when they are fed it which then means they do not eat the correct amount of pellets to get an egg supply.

ORDERS ARE TAKEN FOR THESE BIRDS AND WHEN I HAVE ENOUGH ORDERS THEN THE HENS WILL BE  HERE READY FOR COLLECTION ON THE DAY THEY ARRIVE. 

Please be patient as it will probably be anything between 1 and 4 weeks before the birds arrive   thankyou.
