Mendlesham Ranger

Having a very good temperament and being an excellent layer, this is a good all-round bird and a great beginners bird too.

One of the friendliest birds you could own.

Available Now!  £16  

Mendlesham Blue

Out of all the birds we supply, the blues are always in high demand with their stunning smokey grey plumage.

These are quite a large bird, but could be described as 'gentle giants' as they have a placid nature. 

Taking orders for mid October       £16

                                                                              

Fenning Black

These are very popular birds partly because of the brilliant green & blue sheen of their plumage and could be described as a good all round bird.

They look pretty, lay lots of eggs and are very robust and reliable. 

  Taking orders for mid October   £16

Fenning Sussex

This is the bird which gets recognised the most due to it's close links with the Light Sussex.

The black hackle and tail feathers look great against the white plumage. Another good 'all round' bird. 

  Taking orders for mid October   £16

                                                                     

Mendlesham Amber

This bird is made up using the opposite cross of the one above.

It has the same character, just a different colour. They are a joy to have around having such a friendly nature. Some have brown specks on their plumage such as this one, others are a creamy white colour. 

Taking orders for when we have them available                               £16

Great looking bird - always popular. 

Taking orders for mid October       £16

                                                                           

Fenning White

Having the reputation of being a slightly scatty and flighty bird the Fenning White (White Leghorn) is not everybody's choice. However once in lay she not only calms down but lays beautiful pure white shelled eggs.

This bird does really well in free range conditions

A prolific layer.

A great addition to any flock.
