The Ixworth Hen

Created by Reginald Appleyard, during the 1930s, the Ixworth nearly went extinct during the 1950s; due to the creation of faster growing hybrid broilers. This is a very Rare British Breed. Although the future of the Ixworth is not yet certain it is becoming increasingly popular, and deservingly so! This breed has a gentle, friendly nature and is ideal for both the small-flock keeper and for anyone who wants to raise a bird for the table. Ixworths are a phenomenal dual-purpose breed; birds are heavy and mature quickly. The hens are also generous layers of large tinted eggs: as many as 240 a year.

The hens have a red coloured pea-combe and bright white feathers and legs.

As devoted hobbyists, we are very pleased to offer unlimited after-sales advice and support. We also encourage anyone with a desire to keep a few hens to speak to us, so that we may do our very best to provide you with the necessary knowledge to help you care for and to enjoy your flock!

My flock is closed and I practice strict bio-security, for the essential protection of both my flock and for those who visit and buy chickens from us.
