Birds 2014


This year's birds are shown in the video above. I currently have some surplus stock available. I have kept records of where they were sourced from and this information is available on request:

West of England ganders, £30 each, three different sources.
Pair of Silver Appleyards (a duck and a drake), hatched last year. Colouration not brilliant, but would make nice garden pets for someone, £30 the pair.
Poults about 6 weeks old, off heat and going outside during the day, a few Bourbon Red, Bronze, possibly some spare pied (Crollwitzer) once they are big enough to sex. £12 each. These are all traditional turkey varieties that will breed naturally, not the commercial strain that can't mate or fly. They do indeed FLY so their wings have been trimmed and they will need to be trimmed again when new feathers come in to stop them getting out and falling victim to predators, unless you have a covered enclosure.
All the spare pullets have been reserved.
