Where Can I Buy an Amber Star Chicken Near Wiltshire?

Recommended Posts

I'm keen to buy an Amber Star or similar white(ish), good laying, friendly chicken.

 

I Live in Wiltshire (SN14 7BA) and am having some difficulty finding a supplier, any ideas?

Worldwide poultry in Beaulie.

My Bracken,who is an Amber Star type hen & really beautiful came from there - the chap has loads of great hens running around in a proper farmyard setting :P

 

He has a site if you Google it.

Many thanks for you help. I'm near Worldwide this weekend and the seem very helpful so I'll pop in.

 

The owner(?) had some useful advice that I'd not heard about introducing a new chicken. Leave it until the night when the others are roosting and add the third then. Apparently they're dopy and don't bother much and in the morning they all wake up together with minimal fuss. Anyone else tried this method?

I've just got back from Foxfield Fowls in Ringwood and they had some lovely Ambers... was about the only variety I didn't go for, but they were GORGEOUS!

My girls came from Worldwide Poultry in Beaulieu and I can recommend them. Make an appointment though as you will get personal attention on their busiest day. The owner is called Ron Grover, and he REALLY knows his stuff.

 

Hello BTW - this is my first EVER post, I am a serial lurker... :D
