Here at Appletons we keep many of the traditional heritage breeds of poultry. Heritage poultry are seasonal so if investing in young stock the best way to do it is to either opt for hatching eggs or day old chicks in spring or young heritage pullets from December through to February of each year. The new season kicks off in Spring each year and this is when we start hatching. These new season young pullets (10 -12 weeks) will be ready to go to new homes from December through to March. If purchasing heritage pullets or hens (minimum order of 3) they will need to go with a bag of the same quality feed that they have been on and are accustomed too. This means one less stress when they move to their new home and house. Please read our terms and conditions prior to ordering. Thank you.

Heritage Breed Pullets 2019-2020
We will not have heritage pullets available for sale fo the 2020-2021 season. We will be taking break from hatching and raising pullets for this season. If looking to purchase good, reliable laying hens we still have brown shaver pullets available for purchase. These make great pets and just about lay all year round!
