Compatibility

A robust and hardy breed of French utility hen, classed as a rare breed in the U.K the Coucous Des Rennes is very sought after for its lovely large light brown eggs and capable nature. They would be best suited to a large space where they can forage and free roam daily, they can be contained in a run but would need plenty of space and enrichment. Ideal to mix in rangy flocks of hybrids and pure breeds they are not aggressive but can be big and dominant. Although they may seem aloof they are friendly and will be happy in your company, but perhaps not the cuddliest of breeds. They are large and heavy and make great chickens for first time keepers who are looking for a consistent and sturdy pure breed laying hen.

Expert advice and friendly customer care.

I have been keeping chickens for years and Without a doubt, Pipinchick poultry sell the most beautiful, well cared for hens I have ever come across! Expert advice and friendly customer care, I cannot recommend them enough!

“The customer service and aftercare from the team has been excellent”

"We had one silkie and one pekin bantam delivered nearly 3 weeks ago. They were beautiful and healthy. We had some issues with the pekin acting territorial around bedtime and were worried we wouldn't be able to sort it out. However I got in touch with Susanna at Pipinchick and she gave us loads of great advice. The hens are now snuggling up together each night and we've even started getting eggs! The customer service and aftercare from the team has been excellent and I would highly recommend especially for new chicken owners."

Michaela, Aug ‘22

“I couldn’t recommend highly enough”

"I recently bought my first, two bantam hens from Pipinchick and the whole experience was first class. Suzanna couldn’t have been more helpful, advising me on what breed would be most suited to my circumstances. They delivered both the girls to my door and they’re beautiful, laying within a week of arriving. I couldn’t recommend highly enough if you’re looking to purchase any hens, especially if you’re first time chicken owners. Thank you to Suzanna and the team for such an excellent service!"

“The hens arrived in great condition”

"I have brought two showgirls from pipinchick poultry and I have to say they were worth every penny. They were very accommodating to my questions and requests, Organising delivery to my door and they kept it all social distanced. The hens arrived in great condition, calm, mite/ lice free and really healthy. They provided advice on how to integrate the hens with the rest of the flock which was very helpful, they settled in almost immediately and they are super friendly.
They have both recently started laying and haven't stopped!
I can’t rate them highly enough. Many thanks Pipinchick."

Charlotte, Aug ‘21
