Our Blacktail hens are also known as: Columbian Blacktail/ Red Ranger/ Rhode Island Red Hybrid/ Redco
The Blacktail hens are very attractive chestnut coloured birds with a few black feathers in their tails and on their flight feathers. They are ideal hens for those new to chicken keeping as they are calm, easy-going birds who are very hardy. They are similar in their size, looks and egg laying abilities to the Goldline hens. These birds are incredibly easy to tame as they are naturally very friendly.
Blacktails are very productive hens and will lay approximately 320-340 beautiful brown eggs per year.
We have now SOLD OUT of our Blacktail hens for 2018. They will be available again from February 2019.
