Poultry & Waterfowl

Edfords keeps a number of different types of chickens as well as a small team of Indian Runner Ducks which are kept for their eggs and breeding.

The chickens kept on the farm are here for egg production as well as being a great first introduction to livestock. We keep traditional breeds as we like to have a varied flock with a wide variety of egg colours.
The breeds we keep include:-

    • Light Sussex
    • Rhode Island Red
    • Cuckoo Maran
    • French Copper Maran
    • Orpington
    • Leghorn
    • Lincolnshire Buff
    • Ixworth
    • Cream Legbar

We also keep a number of crosses from these birds giving us layers producing eggs from pale blue, through olive green to dark brown.
