Greenmeadow Poultry

Traditional Utility Breed Hens and Ducks

My Breeds

Because of family considerations I have cut right down on my breeds. I will be hatching very small numbers of my remaining breeds, Barnevelders, Pekins and Barbu d'Anvers. I may also have some Salmon Faverolles from other family members.

Barnevelders and Salmon Faverolles are dual-purpose utility birds that lay dark brown and pinkish eggs respectively.

I also continue to breed bantam Millefleur Pekins and bantam quail-coloured Barbu d'Anvers.

I also have a breeding pair of white Chinese Geese.

This year I have also started a very new venture with a breeding pair of Standard Rex rabbits.

For Sale

We have hatching-eggs and home-hatched birds for sale all year round (depending on fertilty).

Hatching eggs £1 per egg, collected. I do not post hatching eggs.

Young birds start at £5 unsexed, to £30 at POL.

Free Range Eggs

We sell free-range eggs from chickens and ducks at our door in Bagborough and at Minehead Farmers' Market weekly on a Friday.

UK Producer Number 1UK21754.


I run courses on poultry-keeping for both beginners and the more experienced.

I have kept chickens in both a smallholding and a back-garden setting in the last forty years. I have a Further Education Teaching Certificate and used to teach in the Community Education Service.


A series of articles about poultry-keeping and some links to other useful sites.

From hatching to despatching, hints and tips to help you along.
