Chicken Breeds: Genuine Black Rock Poultry

R & A Lovett
Crosslee Poultry Farm
Bridge of Weir
PA11 3RQ

Phone Numbers: 01505 613075 or 01505 613154

We are the only provider of the genuine original BLACK ROCK POULTRY. We are the only commercial hatchery in Scotland producing laying poultry. As the sole UK and potential WORLD supplier with a trade marked and well established brand. There is no alternative source of supply for the genuine and original Black Rock pullets.

It is our intention to continue with the work that Peter Siddons started over the past 60 years with the BLACK ROCK POULTRY. With all the Muirfield hatchery breeding stock now at Crosslee Poultry Farm, Bridge of Weir, the future of the Black Rock strain looks good in the safe hands of Eddie Lovett and his family. ( ref. Kate Siddons. )
