Hello and welcome to our website.
We have had a great start to the breeding season of 2015. The chickens are all feeling and laying very well, leading we hope to lots of lovely chicks over the season ! We do have lots of young chicks about and more on the way we hope.
If you are thinking about getting chickens or adding to your current collection you are welcome to arrange to come and view our breeding stock. Or just phone or email and I will put you on the waiting list for the breeds that appeal to you and your family.
Or just wait a little longer and come and see the youngstock from early May. We shall have a variety of growers to choose from and take home from May.
We do sell day old chicks, so if you would like to raise your own chickens this is a great way of doing it. We hatch fairly frequently so generally we do have lots of chicks to choose from. Day old chicks are available in Salisbury but not in Tavistock unless pre-ordered.
Wylye Valley Chickens are also in Tavistock
We shall also have chickens for sale in Tavistock, Devon. My sister has decided she would like to expand Wylye Valley Chickens into the West Country. All the breeds we breed are therefore also available by order and the majority on demand in Tavistock, Devon. The chicks are bred in here at Wylye Valley Chickens (Salisbury) but then travel down and grow up on the edge of Dartmoor at Wylye Valley Chickens (Tavistock). They are reared and cared for to the same exacting standards as here. Any inquiries regarding the Chickens in Tavistock can be made using the contact form on the website or by calling 07786 025446.
Please feel free to contact us to arrange to have a look at the chickens we have for sale currently or of course look at our breeding stock.
We have been breeding chickens for nine years and have over 27 different traditional breeds of chicken for sale. It is a hobby that requires a lot of work at certain times of the year and obviously a continuous year round commitment. We only breed pure bred chickens, and all are grass reared in large paddocks, vaccinated and wormed. Although there are plenty of short cuts that can be taken, we try at great lengths to avoid them! Traditional and Rare breed chickens offer such variety of character, appearance, size and colour of both chicken and egg!
Many people who visit us arrive already with a lot of knowledge, gained either from experience or books and internet. Generally everyone is astounded by the variety of chickens we breed. Some people prefer layers and may not believe our hens are worth a visit. But, if I can persuade them to come and see our hens they usually appreciate the variety and quality that cannot be found in a hybrid. Some even take a couple of hens away with them to “jazz up” their current flock of chickens and make it a collection.
If you are not sure what rare breed of chicken you’d like, come and have a look and see them for yourself .
If you want some interesting and amusing pets to teach the children how to look after animals, a few hens at the bottom of the garden to ensure you have a fresh supply of free range eggs or you are keen on traditional breeds of poultry….. WE CAN HELP YOU!
We are able to supply you with any number of birds, eggs for your own incubation, day old chicks and growers through to fully grown Point Of Lay birds.
All livestock carries a 7 day guarantee, should anything happen to your birds within 7 days of purchase, we will replace (where possible) with a bird of the same breed, age and sex, (some exclusions do apply).
All birds over the age of six weeks are sexed to the best of our ability, however, due to the vagaries of nature, mistakes can happen and we will gladly replace mis-sexed birds within four weeks of purchase.
