Compatibility

Lovely mid-sized birds, good in most settings, would need lots of run enrichment. Busy chicken and very clever, they are naturally inquisitive and friendly, they prefer to be in breed pairs or like company, they can be mixed in flocks of hybrids and smaller bantams. They like to perch and roost and would enjoy a home with open areas to explore. A lovely garden buddy and good, robust, all-round chicken. They can manage a house with a ladder or ramp and do like to roost at night.

Suited to all spaces

“Would recommend them to anyone interested in keeping chickens”

"I have just bought 2 beautiful Brahmas from Pipinchick Poultry and would recommend them to anyone interested in keeping chickens. I had heard horror stories about introducing new chickens, but I got lots of great advice on compatibility with my existing hybrid and what would work best in my back garden set-up. 5 days in and everything is going better than I could have hoped."

Rhiannon Daniels, Feb ’23

“High quality chickens in perfect health”

“I have just received 2 blue Appenzellers from Pipinchick Poultry and they are the most gorgeous birds. They have fitted into my mixed flock with ease and are so beautiful. The help, advice and guidance has been excellent and I heartily recommend them for high quality chickens in perfect health”
