Welcome to Pear Tree Poultry

Pear Tree Poultry are here to help where we can, by providing experience, good quality housing, feed, bedding and accessories, and not forgetting the hens.

Poultry keeping has become one of the UK's fastest growing hobbies. You need no previous experience to start the hobby, although there are some very good books on the market. There are also some breeders, like ourselves, who offer basic introductory courses at very reasonable prices for those keen to experience a 'hands-on' review before committing fully or even just to enhance their existing knowledge. You will find the hobby very rewarding, not just the eggs, and probably one which you will find quite addictive. Each hen seems to have its own character. You will soon find yourself spending many enjoyable hours just watching them and feeling completely relaxed, particularly after a stressful day at work.

We sell both Hybrid hens and Pure Breeds. The hybrid hens are usually available throughout the year. We also have a number of pure breed flocks in Large Fowl and Bantam sizes from which we sometimes have both surplus eggs and birds for sale. The main breeding time for pure breeds is spring through summer. We stock all associated poultry products in our farm shop and we offer a holiday home service to look after your hens whilst you go on vacation. However, what we offer most of all is our friendly advice, personal experience and enthusiasm for all things poultry! Why not pay us a visit. You are more than welcome to come and have a look around.
