We have too many bantams

Updated: We’ve now found homes for them all – thanks for all the emails and comments.


We got a few broody bantam hens to incubate some eggs for us (the shavers we have are great layers but not so good at mothering). Unfortunately the bantams started sneaking off to have clutches of their own so now we have a bit of a surplus.

If you’re anywhere near Masterton and would like some free bantams (hens, roosters or chicks) then drop us a line – farmgeek@gmail.com

    Eat them! If nothing else they make great soup-ers, which is what we do with ours if they are a bit on the tough side.

    Reading this a bit late, but if you still have surplus hens/chicks we’d be keen to take some off your hands! :)
