Reviews & Customer Comments


Thanks so much for our lovely hens bought today Mable Marjorie and Madge have settled in well and are now settled in the roost i will send some pics soon. D.P.
A top house for my top girlies-their first day in The Durham Hen House!!!  C.A.
My little Coral Nick is now laying beautifully formed little cream eggs. She has laid every day for the last 3 days bless her. They have all settled in so well and are beautiful. Just waiting for the others to get the hint now lol and we will be well away. I think I may be convincing my better half to extend the run as well so it may not be too long before I am visiting again for a few more ladies lol....its certainly addictive this chicken keeping malarky.  J.B.
Bought 3 hens and assorted supplies this morning, excellent friendly and helpful service, thank you for your help and advice. I.W.

We are so happy we found you via your very impressive website. We travelled from Prudhoe on Sunday as a Father's day gift of two selected hen's who would be 'pets' as well as layers. We chose the Gingernut and Rhode Black as our first. I have to say from what we understood they would take maybe 2 weeks to be 'pets' but they were instant friends to us, nestling into us, sitting on our knee, shoulder and free to choose their friend. I was their chosen one for some reason, but all in all we are so impressed with you we will be back and have sent an email to enquire about another to join our family. Thanks so much Durham Hens, you have done us proud and the ladies too. x  L.K.

The Welsummer chicks we got on Saturday are doing very well and are gorgeous - thank you so much. J.T-C.

Just to say a big thank you for your prompt postage and advice when I purchased 'respite' before my holiday in August. It certainly was a good tonic for my chicken's cold symptoms !  M.H.

Hi, We came with our son on Tuesday and bought 3 hens from you, a Blue Haze, a Leghorn and a Black Rock, Just thought we'd let you know that they are doing fine and have settled in perfectly. We'll be back soon for another 3 to join our flock!  M.I.

Thanks for showing us round today, we cant wait to come back & get our hens. The eggs are yummy.........x  D.D.T.

The four girls we bought from you on Saturday are doing well and settling nicely. The Gingernut (Tilly) laid an egg for us today. The boys were so excited. Clever girl! Thanks so much for all your help. Early days, but we are hooked!  P.W.

I received the box of goodies today. They all seem to have arrived safely, very well packed. I can't wait to start using this, will be our first incubator raised hens. Thank you for the very good service.  M.T.

Nuggets the Columbian Blacktail is laying now! Snowball the Coral Nick rarely misses a day and Bella the Rhode Rock gives us loads of double yolkers! Love them, every trip up the garden is wonderful, they always make me smile. So nosey, and funny! xx  K.T.

Just thought I would drop you a quick email to let you know that I will be starting Vet School in September at Nottingham University after receiving my results on Thursday. Many thanks for all the help you have given me; I really appreciate it and feel as though it definitely helped me attain my place!  T.W. (Work experience)

My husband and myself arrived at about 3.15 this afternoon expecting you to be closed. We were so please you were open and received a great tour of the chickens. You gave us so much information and I even got to stroke chicken for the first time. We are new to this but i am already hooked. We are going to get a house and run ordered and then will be back for the chickens. Anyway thank you so much for your care and attention this afternoon. Much appreciated. S.S.

The eggs from our lovely columbine(Poppy) we got from you won 2nd prize yesterday at our local show! We are very proud of her and her beautiful bluey eggs!!  L.S.

My father and I would like to say a huge thank you to all at Durham Hens, The Sunday morning spent although weather was shocking was a real help and very informative. Dad's hens have settled very well and look stunning full of health, eating and drinking well. They have adapted to their new home very quickly and he his awaiting the first eggs to arrive. My silkies finally came out of the pop hole yesterday, again eating and drinking well. My wife loves them, a huge relief. Please could you post this on your site as we both highly recommend your hens along with your ability and confidence in the world of poultry keeping. John & Ian Young. March 2nd 2014.

I just thought I'd drop you a line to say thanks for the advice you gave me regarding a Columbian Black Tail that was suffering from some intestinal infection causing diarrhoea.  Your recommendation of using Herb 'n' Thrive seems to have done the trick and the chicken has returned to her normal self within a couple of weeks.  S.W.

I have been in today and purchased the dozen gingernut rangers I was after.  They are the best quality hens that I have ever bought and will use Durham Hens again in the future.  I'll also let people on our allotment site know about you, by putting your contact details up in our association hut.  Thanks again.  D.F.

I'd just like to say thank you for the hens I purchased a few weeks back. They've all settled in very happily and all are laying now everyday. The gingernuts are probably the friendliest and most inquisitive birds I've come across. Fantastic birds. Thank you very much.  G.K.

I thought I should let you know how pleased I am with the results of our batch of eggs.  Of the eighteen sent, thirteen have hatched. This represents a hatch rate of 72% which is a lot higher than we were expecting, brilliant.  D.I.

Just wanted to say.. We purchased 3 lovely girls in july. As first time owners,They've settled in wonderfully. We are getting plenty of eggs and i cant imagine our garden without them. They are so happy and healthy and i would definately recommend any one considering purchasing hens, to go to Durham hens. Such gorgeous friendly little things !  A.W.

I just wanted to say that I am delighted with my Cream Legbars - I bought fertile eggs from you in the Summer.
My cockerel is beautiful - I called him Digby ! He is barred grey and cream and has bright chestnut on his back - he is just starting to say "hello world" but does not quite know the words yet - or the tune - he sounds more like a dog barking !!! They are very friendly and give lovely cuddles - especially Digby. When I am mucking out I usually find 2 on my shoulders pecking at my ears. As I breed - I love them - thank you all very much.  M.D.

Thank you guys for looking after my chooks. They still wont speak to me but look as good as when I dropped them off for a Hen Holiday so I know they have had a great time. I cannot recommend the Hen Holiday service enough. It is an absolutely brilliant idea and it's so reassuring knowing that your hens are in such good hands. I cannot fault the service you provide it's always exceptional. Its what keeps me coming back time and time again. Many, many thanks. J.B.

I just wanted to thank you very much for today's course. It was wonderful. There was so much to take in but the information was presented in such a clear calm way that I think I've absorbed the majority of it. And I just loved the hens (and cockerels) it was great to be able to see so many varieties....Thanks again it was a fabulous morning. A.W.
