The continuing development of new varieties of hybrid chickens has seen a serious decrease over the years in the true pure-breeds of poultry. This is an important conservation issue as we have already lost breeds, such as, The Exmoor and Kent Fowl.
At Haytor Reach we only raise pure- bred, traditional and rare breeds of chicken, and we are passionate about the conservation work that we do.
We keep Traditional and Rare Breeds that are known for their good laying ability, dual purpose breeds (meat and eggs) and some which just look beautiful!
So if you would like a few chickens for your back garden please consider a pure-breed and help preserve them for our future generations to see.
We are proud to be members of The Rare Breeds Survival Trust, click on the link below and visit their site.
