Itís a good idea to give them
a quick call before going to visit them to
check what they have in stock and whether it is convenient for you to visit.
Explain what you are after and they will
be more than happy to recommend which
chickens from their stock are best suited to your requirements.

Things to look out for in a healthy chicken
It is best to buy your chickens when it is light and the chickens are out and about. A healthy chicken will be bright, alert and active during the day. Her feathers will be glossy, and if she is already laying her comb will be pronounced and bright red. Younger birds, not yet laying eggs, have smaller combs which grow in size and colour. The legs should be smooth, and if you pick her up she should feel firm not flabby. You may see some hens with bald patches. This could be because they are in moult, an annual period where they loose quite a lot of feathers or because you are looking at the chicken at the bottom of the pecking order. If you buy a chicken like this, she will normally grow new feathers in a few weeks and look as good as new.
