Welcome to Orchard Poultry

Based in the lush green fields of Somerset, Orchard Poultry offers a range of poultry for laying, exhibition, ornamental and table purposes. We breed and sell ornamental and rare breed poultry, waterfowl & Guinea fowl and hatching eggs. We only breed from the healthiest and strongest pure-breed stock to provide you with the best birds possible. Most of our sale stock is at Point of Lay (POL for short), but you can contact us to talk about what you want.

As well as our pure bred poultry, we also carry a new range of Hybrid Poultry and these can be found on the Hybrid page.

Our birds are reared with lots of leg-room and grass to run around on; We’ve been advised by our Vets and DEFRA that too many incoming visits risks bringing disease to our girls, so please don’t turn up without arranging things with us first; our primary concern is the welfare of our birds.

We transport your poultry to you by a specialist DEFRA registered courier to ensure the bird’s welfare and make the journey as stress-free as possible for the birds.

Have a browse around the pages for hens, ducks, quail and other fowl; We love our poultry and hope you will too.

We are members of the RBST (Rare Breed Survival Trust) and the BWA (British Waterfowl Association).

Spring Sale, Mandarin Pairs at £50 per pair for a limited time.

All Fully Vaccincated Stock

All our poultry are vaccinated against: Marek’s Disease, Infectious Bronchitis, Newcastle Disease, Avian Rhrinotracheitis, Egg Drop Syndrome and Mycoplasma gallisepticum. We are also DEFRA registered.

    When you’re buying poultry, it’s worth checking out what the breeder means by “vaccinated”, as it can be one of those terms that varies greatly in meaning from one breeder to another.

    My Favourite dish, Fresh!! From running around out in the field to cooked on a plate within an hour. These are my favourite ducks, not just that they are quiet and friendly and wandering around the garden like a pet rabbit…

Testimonials

Just thought that I’d let you know that I won 1st prize today for a dark Indian Game hen that I got off you earlier this year at The Royal County of Berkshire (Newbury) Show and thought you’d like to know! Regards,

Robin

Just a short note to say the four hens arrived looking bright and healthy this afternoon. They set about investigating their new quarters straight away and so far I am very pleased with them. Malcolm the courier was very helpful, carrying them into the garden for me. First class service! Thanks for all your help.

Leva, Neath, Wales.

Just to say we did what you said and put them in as night. They are a bit wary of each other but not fighting like they did yesterday. We’ve even had our first egg! Thank you for being so kind. It was lovely to be able to go in to see the chickens with the kids and choose. Kind regards.
