    Keeper of the hens

    Pear Tree Poultry are a chicken breeder located near Preston.

    When Scarlet decided it was time we should get hens again (!), she found Pear Tree and was impressed at the breeds on offer, and it was also pretty close to us, so that was decided!

    We had a nightmare journey and the lovely people at Pear Tree stayed open for an extra half-hour for us to arrive and choose hens! They obviously care very much about their hens, the attention and enthusiasm is contagious!

    Our 6 girls (5 rare breeds and a hybrid) have settled down really well and are lovely, friendly girls - a definite benefit of how they were raised.

    We were really impressed by the chickens, their runs, and the staff at Pear Tree, they're our favourite :)

    Well done on giving them a shout-out Neil. The pictures looked great and their customer service seemed to be excellent too.

    Keeper of the hens

    I LOVED Pear Tree Poultry, and I can't wait to go back - when can we go dad?? :bigsmile:

    The birds were extremely well looked after and they seemed like beautiful examples of the breeds. The Light Sussex were almost completely unrecognisable to Milly (who was a very tatty and scruffy Light Sussex :rolling: )! I've already posted these pics of the set-ups, but I'll include them here too:

    The enclosures were gigantic - so nice to see!

    All the runs had perches for the hens :)

    I know my dad really really wants to go back (NO DAD, STEP AWAY FROM THE SILKIES!!) so hopefully we'll get to again pretty soon, and we'll even be able to look around the garden centre, which I think has a large pet section ^__^

    Show them some pics of your set-up. I'm sure they will be impressed.
