This Rhode Island Red crossed Barred Plymouth Rock takes its genetics from the original black hybrid breeding programmes. Originally from Harco and Arbor Acre stock and now bred by Hendrix/Shaver, this bird comes from the biggest and most diverse gene pool available for this type hybrid. Being part of Hendrix Genetics means this strain has continued to be selected and improved year on year. The big advantage of this strain over other black hybrids is the commercial nature of the parent stock and breeding system.  Well proven over decades in all systems including the most demanding environments, this bird is suitable for everyone. From hobbyist to commercial free range units

    Really friendly staff and service. Great chicken catching ability!! Really pleased with our four new hens 1xlohman brown and 3xbovans nera. Friendly sociable birds that have settled well into my small flock and already started producing. Would highly recommend moon ridge farm. Thanks guys! 🙂

    Delighted with the two Bovans Nera and one Speckled Leghorn purchased three weeks ago. One of the B Nera has started laying (in November!) so truly point of lay. They settled in really quickly and are charming, inquisitive and confident little characters. I was very impressed with the high standards kept at Moonridge and you will certainly see you again.
