Welcome to Pecking Orders,

home of our feathered & furry family



We are a small family hobby farm who started keeping chickens several years ago. We started off with 10 hybrid hens and selling fresh laid eggs at the door. This then led onto breeding pygmy goats, owning 9 miniature donkeys and 2 shetland ponies! Little did we know it would gradually become the main focus of our lives.

We like to hold open days for people to come and visit our animals throughout the year when the weather is agreeable.

If you are new to keeping chickens, please read our quick guide to chicken keeping to help you decide if chickens are right for you. Unfortunately we no longer breed pure-breed chickens/ducks or supply hatching eggs. We also do not re-home cockerels.
