Chicken and Poultry Breeders in the UK

Finding the nearest Breeder to your Home


Chicken Breeders

Maybe you are buying Chickens for the first time and not sure where to go?

The Chicken & Poultry Breeders listings started in 2012 and I'm pleased to say that over 300 Breeders have submitted their details.

Simply find your County on the left hand links, each entry has what breeds they sell, contact and web site (where applicable) details.

You will find some of the most popular birds listed on our Chicken Breeds pages, including ex-Battery Hens.

If you are a Breeder or someone who knows one who would be interested in supplying details for free (no catches, no reciprocal links etc) please do so. The more the merrier and the idea of these listings is to promote back garden chicken keeping accross the country.
