We're passionate about animal welfare here at Hinchliffe's, and the way we look after our poultry proves it.

Chickens for sale

Family owned and operated for more than 40 years, our 18 fully accredited poultry farms are widely recognised as one of the country’s leading suppliers of healthy, superior-quality birds. 

Whether you’re a large-scale commercial egg producer or a family looking for half a dozen chickens to rear in your own back garden, Hinchliffe’s service combines friendliness and expertise backed up with the reassurance that comes from RSPCA Freedom Food and Lion Code certification.

Operating completely independently of hatcheries and feed firms, we rear our birds in a carefully designed barn system which allows them freedom of movement and promotes natural behaviours, great general well-being and improved temperament. 

Our experienced team oversees all appropriate vaccinations, worming and salmonella testing, giving our birds the best possible chance of leading healthy and happy lives.  Add nationwide delivery and a wide selection of both commercial and rare breeds, and it’s easy to see why we’ve long been a firm favourite among domestic and commercial customers committed to animal welfare.

Just to say Thank you! I collected 3 hens - dotty, cybil (Nero's?) and gerty (Speckled rock) from yourselves last summer.
Having kept chickens on and off since 1991 and having sourced chickens from a number of places. I can happily say your birds are exceptional both from a quality and quantity of eggs to amazing disease resistance and nature, I was wondering if you would consider breeding Bantams at any time in the future?
Anyhow Thanks again
Ali Kokinis, Sheffield (Aug 2012)

I just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you. I came yesterday and finally bought my hens. It was so easy and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would also like to say thank you to Jack, he caught the chickens for us and also kept my dad happy by answering all the questions he had. The hens are all settled in and clucking away in their new home. Once again thank you!

The birds are doing well with a very good temperament and generally look great. Would you give my thanks to all concerned for a job well done.
John Porritt of Potto, North Yorkshire

They are as good as they get!

…Brilliant. They are really doing well!
