Welcome to Hollycroft Hens! We live on and operate a wholesale nursery in the Pinelands of New Jersey. With plenty of space, why not raise a few chickens? And so it began with 8 chickens. And then a few more chickens, and so it goes. But we have narrowed it down to 4 (or 5) breeds that we are partial to. For the moment. ;) (But we're keeping that on the down low.)
The surprising thing about raising chickens is their mentality. They each have a personality. I found that surprising. Some are smarter than others. Some are meaner than others, and some just settle right into your heart. Like a dog, they're very loyal. And raising them has been a great experience. And so many tasty breakfasts to remember. Email us at HollyCroftHens@comcast.net for hatching eggs availability.
Disclaimer: I do not qualify my stock as "breeder quality" or "show quality". Both terms are subjective, depending on the individual and circumstances. What I do guarantee is a remarkable and healthy bird while in my possession and at the time of outside purchase. I will not sell a bird that lacks the character and qualities required of a particular breed. I qualify my birds as"Hollycroft Quality". And that is a remarkable quality bred with good care, good nutrition, and most of all, abundant love. <3
Inky, our Head Silkie Hen
