Choosing and buying hens

We’ve just added a new article to the learning section of our site.  It contains information on the different types of laying hens available in Ireland and where they can be purchased.

The article starts with a description of the different types of hens and the distinction between the two main categories.  It then links to two further articles as follows.

(1) The list of available laying hens in Ireland.  We have concentrated on hybrid hen varieties as these are the most common type of chicken to keep in a family garden for eggs.  This list is information that isn’t currently available in Ireland.

(2) A directory of suppliers of these types of hens in different parts of Ireland.  We will develop this directory over time and welcome any feedback on suppliers or details of additional suppliers that you recommend.
