You can click on the links above or on the Breeds page or find these pages in "About Hens" > "Breeds" in the menu at the top of every page.

 

Please note that Suzie Baldwin is the chicken expert and any errors in the compiled breed information are down to the website developer rather than Suzie who will be along shortly to make any changes and corrections. All image attributions are given on the individual breed page rather than the above thumbnails.

We have had an exciting few weeks at Hollywater Hens, Ed from The Observer spent the afternoon enjoying all the animals. I had a lovely interview with Bunny from the Telegraph. My new book "The Smallholders Handbook" has been released, we have 2 gorgeous lambs, lots and lots of chicks and more broody hens. Its been lovely to catch up with previous customers and meeting so many new ones. Thanks everyone for all your support and good wishes.

Hollywater Hens Shop

The new Hollywater Hens Shop is now open at our smallholding near Bordon in Hampshire.

The shop is fully stocked with a good range of poultry related items that we have tried and tested – from chicken coops and runs, to feeders, drinkers, wormer, tonic and bedding. We only sell products that are practical, and in our experience, work. (We have also managed to source pretty and practical, which I love). We also sell gifts and artwork.
