Russet- Brand new for 2021!
We are very excited to have the beautiful Russet hens available this year. They have a 90% chance of laying a lovely pale green to olive green coloured egg.
These hens have a very unique look, often featuring beards, ear tuffs or a crested "hair do". They range in plumage colour from a pale creamy brown to a dark copper and are often flecked with white, golden or charcoal grey feathers. With the range of colours of these hens, some can bear a resemblance in feather appearance to our Goldline or Blacktail hens. However, the Russet ladies tend to have blue/grey legs which is a good way to distinguish them, as well as their facial fluff! They are also a little more spirited than their counterparts, although not as flighty as our White Rangers.
Our fully vaccinated Russet hens are £25 each. We are taking reservations for this breed now. To be added to the reservation list please email us here with details on the breeds of hens you would like, total number of hens and a contact number.
