Choose from the selection we have here and take them home.

  1. Annelies Johnson

    Bought two hens on Saturday afternoon and had two lovely dark brown eggs on Sunday morning! Couldn’t be happier! Really helpful young man caught the hens I had chosen and even clipped their wings for me.
    Excellent service – would definitely buy from again.

  2. Gina Gray

    Really pleased with our chestnut ranger hen, beautifully coloured with feathered legs. Great selection of breeds to choose from and very helpful staff. Would definitely recommend moonridge farm for happy, healthy poultry.

  3. Tracy Izod

    Love my new girl! ‘Nutkin’ is just gorgeous. So placid and easy to handle. The eggs caused quite a stir in our house as they are indeed very dark and speckled! A perfect addition to our mixed group of girls.

  4. Polly Potter

    Absolutely beautiful girl, a lot of Orpington Buff in her mix, I call her “Blondie”. Friendly, lovely natured. However, in over 12 months I’ve only had one egg from her. Unless she’s found some very, very clever place to nest! But she’s so beautiful I can’t resent her keep.
