Is there anywhere on the A11/A14 between Norwich & Cambridge where I could buy some chickens?

Bantams

Maybe 2 or 3?

A bit of a tall order I know

Cambridge poultry sell lf

CKC stowmarket way might have some

The back of this month's Practical Poultry have lots of suppliers in the back

I have one bantam but my kids would kill me if I got rid of it - sorry

Sorry, should have used capitals - is meant to be LF

Thanks - Cambridge Poultry are closed tomorrow

I don't buy chicken magazines (maybe I should)

Oh yes, practical poultry is greatgrin, and their forum.

Country Smallholding/holder hmm is a good read too - what a sad little life I lead grin

Easton farm park. They had some a month ago when I was there, £2 each.

i have some hybrids for sale. most are laying now some are still abit young.i live 8 miles west of cambridge

Ihatethecold - I'm sorry I bought some from North Walsham - sounds like you would have been perfect for me

I have had a horrid day tbh - getting the chickens was a really nice ending

I have a cream legbar which might be a bit big (possibly to be called Pootle) & a cross between a Marsh Daisy & a Sicilian Buttercup (probably to be called Daicup)

We also have a refusal on another cross (Daisy/Buttercup) called Ishmai.....but we don't know if it's a girl yet

Not at all what I went shopping for

glad to hear you got sorted

Katymac Sun 05-Jul-09 12:05:37

What sort do you have?

ChasingSquirrels Sun 05-Jul-09 12:07:59

how much are yours ihatethecold?

ihatethecold Mon 06-Jul-09 09:51:25

i depends on how old they are. the hens that are now laying are £14. the ones which are younger are £10. they will come into lay in a few weeks. they are not bantams though.

ah, similar to cambridge poultry then - which is only a couple of miles down the road. Thanks though.
