Hobby & Pure Breeds

We offer owners of pure-bred chicken breeds and back yard/ hobby birds all the same services that are available to commercial flocks.

We can also examine individual birds in a consultation at Tarvin – just make an appointment by ringing the office.

There is a wealth of information on the Internet to offer help and advice with poultry keeping both from the UK and abroad. One excellent site giving details of breeds of chickens, ducks and geese and general advice can be accessed by clicking on the link below.


You can also download a leaflet on the problems relating to feather loss in chickens and the control measures available.
