Thank you, will email tomorrow (today!).

Now 49 Suppliers listed in 28 Counties.

Sent out over 400 emails. Quite a few, about 50 I reckon, have come back as not being there anymore, so that plus so many websites which seem to have closed down is bad news for Breeders it seems.

Strange I haven't had more replies really. It is, trust me, something for nothing, I'm not asking a fee or a link. Maybe is really is too good to be true!

Ok here is one from the West of Scotland, Jane supplies, fertile eggs,day olds,chicks and Point-of-Lay , Hens and ducks. I have found her honest and reliable - though actually getting to her farm is a bit yike* a mile up a bumpy single track road , fab views when you get there, the farm has been in her husbands family some time now.
It will be alright in the end , if its not alright, it isn't the end .

Hi Richard -

Jody from http://www.rawgreencottages.co.uk/ is a lovely lady, get regular emails from her. She is based near Barnsley, South Yorkshire. Has a nice selection of birds and I think her prices are good.

Thank you, I will contact her Greta.

I noted from those who have listed that some have boarding facilities, so my next plan of action is to email everyone I did before with a submit form solely for that - another new main site category!!
It may also spur those who haven't submitted their details to do so.

But it's coming along well, I think over 60 are now listed in 30 plus counties.

I don't know if you have these on your list yet but, they are based in Berkshire and we have got most of our chickens from them. All of their stock is healthy and vaccinated and they give you the time you need to talk about them and ask questions. http://www.motherhenspoultry.com/
