There are 5 chickens to choose from, all with individual personalities to suit; The Plymouth Rock being calm and cold-hardy, the Light Sussex calm and curious, the Rhode Island Red cold-hardy and friendly and the White & Brown Leghorn flocks which are very active. The team also offer food safety, nutrition and breed advice for the new starter.
