Lovely Breed - Jade, Nottinghamshire,

We were beginner chicken owners and bought a mix of chickens 12mths ago. Of these our all round favourite is the Barred Plymouth Rocks. The roosters are very docile (we have currently 5) and not one has ever been aggressive and they attend their flock beautifully. The hens are very broody and have withheld their eggs unless being broody, that said we have almost encouraged this in our inexperience. That said their eggs are lovely and as a meat bird (culled roosters) they have a good carcass size,flavour etc.


Great easy first time birds. - Simon, Nottinghamshire,

I have 4 hens, 1 cockerel, and 1 hen Wellsummer. The hens are braver than the Wellsummer, very friendly and incredibly nosey. When ever you go out they run over to see if you have brought something nice for them. Really windy where I live but it doesn’t seem to bother them in the slightest. The eggs are delicious. One word of caution!!! The cockerel has attacked me twice (from behind) drawn blood once, and attacked my wife. He is now wary of me but it takes some work to assert your dominance. Wouldn’t recommend if you have children. Stick to hens.


The Plymouth Rock - Mason, Nottinghamshire,

I really love the Plymouth Rock breed it is my favorite chicken ever. I really like the barred pattern on the feathers. These chickens are also very exceptional egg layers. They are very social to mine will just eat out of my hand. I really like the Plymouth Rock.

An excellent layer and an excellent meat breed


My best egg and a magnificent bird - Caroline, Nottinghamshire,

I have a variety of different breeds, but my barred Plymouth rock lays by far and away the best egg. It is not only beautiful to look at - a delicate pink - but also tastes far richer and is deeper yellow than all my other eggs, athough she has the same range. She is big and so smart with her black and white stripes and shining feathers, and is probably my best-natured with all the other birds. She is quite talkative with a gentle voice and is a lovely placid, easy going bird. Definitely one of my favourites.
