How We Started
I have had chickens as pets since I was a child and bred them on and off over the years. When we moved here to Newland 20 years ago I was lucky enough to have the space to start breeding more hens, and the previous occupants had helpfully left me a flock of chickens to help get me started again. Buff Orpingtons were then my favourite breed and I have hatched many hundreds (probably thousands) of them over the years. It's strange how my tastes have changed and my favourite breed of chicken is now the smallest in the world - the Serama.
I noticed more and more requests for chickens about 13 years ago and began to struggle to keep up with demand for the pure breed chickens I was hatching here. A few hybrids were brought in as good layers, and as I had some spare I placed an advert in the local papers. The phone didn't stop ringing and Newland Poultry was established! It has grown from my passion for poultry which is lucky as it is a 24/7 job.
My flock of sheep and all the pigs were sold as time became limited so I could devote more time to the chickens and promoting the business. I've got to say it's a job I love and I am so lucky to be able to do it. The winter months are challenging, wading through mud and working outdoors in all weather, but still nothing beats the first chicks hatching every year and setting new chicken keepers up with something I am so passionate about.
As the business grew my three sons have helped in the shop and running the business so we are truly a family business. I have my sons in training, one is doing an Agriculture degree and the other 2 are doing business degree's so I'm hopeful they will all soon return full time to grow the business for me!
Not only do I love breeding chickens, I have a particular passion for learning about them and have qualified as an Avian SQP allowing me to prescribe certain avian medicines. This involves ongoing training to remain qualified which is something I enjoy. I am always happy to talk 'chicken' and love introducing people to the hobby.
