At Edinburgh Chickens you can choose from 14 different varieties of hybrid hen. They all mix happily together so you can pick any combination of birds you like.
They're assorted colours and each type has their own characteristics but they all share an easy-going nature and have great egg laying potential - you can even choose from brown, white or blue egg layers.
All are suitable to keep in a garden situation and also for novice keepers or happily free range in a large flock.
OUT OF STOCK 290 White Eggs. A prolific layer of lovely white eggs. She's and elegant bird who is quick and light on her feet!. Dark brown and gold in colour she is a gorgeous bird when mature.
LOW STOCK 280 Brown/Pink Eggs A blueish, greyish, purplely ball of feathers, a powder puff on legs! Her colouring ranges from light to dark but all are a beautiful colour. She’s very friendly too .

Light Sussex Star £20
IN STOCK 280 Brown eggs She is a very attractive, sparkling white bird with black feathers at her collar, tail and wing tips. Quite heavy and traditional looking with a docile, laid-back nature.
IN STOCK 290 Brown Eggs. A very Chic Chick, with predominantly black colouring which glistens green in the sunshine, and varying degrees of gold around her collar. The Nero is a beautiful hen but, despite this, she is hardy enough to withstand the rigours of our Scottish climate. Bold and friendly.

Lavender Splash £20
LOW STOCK 290 Cream Eggs. A delicate shade of lavender with splashes of black feathering throughout she's especially pretty, much lighter than the bluebell. A good layer and a placid natured hen.
White Star £20
IN STOCK 300 Pure White Eggs. She only little but she's sparky and she lays beautiful pearly white eggs just as big (if not bigger) than her larger chums. A very reliable layer and although she's unlikely to want to sit on your knee she is still one of my favourites.
