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.
Our fully vaccinated Blacktail hens can be reserved now for Spring 2024 collection via Chickens To Your Door- just select Martins Wood Farm as your pick up point and choose "Paula @ Martins Wood Farm" as where you heard about them.
