Welcome to Hens on Oxney

We sell beautiful point of lay hybrids and a selection of pure breed point of lay hens. We also breed our own rare breeds including the very rare Silver Deathlayers, Groninger Meeuwen bantams, Bresse de Gauloise, Swedish Flower Hens, Silverudds Blå, Hedemora, Ayam Ketawa (Indonesian Laughing Chicken) and Cream Legbars. We sell these as chicks, growers and point of lay during the season and can supply hatching eggs during spring and summer months.


We love our happy chickens and happy customers - If you need any advice either before or after buying, get in contact and we'll be happy to help.
