Colehurst Laying Hens is the One-Stop Chicken Shop for hens and poultry supplies.
We supply young hens at the 'point-of-lay' - usually around 15 to 20 weeks of age depending on the variety of hen. This is the age when a young pullet starts to lay eggs, and the age when she is ready to settle down to a new life and routine in a new hen house.
We can normally supply any number of hens - from two or three for a backyard henhouse - to a thousand or more for a small commercial unit. The numbers and varieties that we have in stock always varies from week to week. You do please need to telephone first to confirm that we have the hens you need.

All our hens have been fully vaccinated against the most common poultry diseases.
Our most popular hen is The Lohmann Brown, a hybrid hen with characteristics from Rhode Island Red and White Sussex varieties. She is similar to a Warren Hen. She is a very sturdy, and friendly bird, easy to handle, comfortable in the British climate, and an excellent egg-layer, ideally suited for domestic or small scale use. She will lay beautiful large brown eggs with strong shells and an excellent flavour. If you keep your birds well fed and healthy, then you should get around 330 or more eggs a year (almost an egg a day) at her peak of lay.
We can usually supply Lohmann Brown hens for most months of the year. Call us to check availability and to arrange to collect your birds 07802 540402
