French Copper Maran Originating from France and one of the more recent breed introduced to the UK, the Copper Maran is available in a variety of colours.  At Hensting Alpacas we breed three colours; Copper Blue, Copper Black and Copper Splash.  Each lay approximately 150 very popular dark brown eggs a year and are historically a dual purpose breed.  Generally placid, hardy and disease resistant, Maran enjoy free-ranging and can become fat if not given this chance.  They originally have feathered legs and we concentrate on maintaining this feature in our breeding stock
Cream Crested Legbar An older pure breed, the Cream Legbar has a lovely crest on top of its head and can be auto-sexed by the feather colour as chicks.  They are generally unlikely to go brood and they lay 180 beautiful pale blue eggs each year that are a healthier option as they are significantly lower in cholesterol than other eggs.  Primarily kept as egg- layers, Cream Legbar are hardy and not flighty and being quite light, require slightly less feed than other breeds.
Light Sussex Originating from Sussex, as the name suggests, the Light Sussex has been around for over 100 years being one of the oldest known breeds still available today.  This breed is dual purpose, in that they are bred to be good egg layers in addition to good table birds.  The hen will lay around 260 eggs a year, creamy/light brown colour, and generally large in size.  Light Sussex chickens are happy to be both kept in a run or free-ranging, have good temperaments and are good foragers.  They are also one of our hardier breeds  
Rhode Island Red Another dual-purpose breed, the Rhode Island Red has dark, glossy reddish-brown plumage.  It originates from the US and, when crossed with a Sussex, provides the most popular lighter reddish- brown hybrid chicken available today.  Rhode Island Red lay 150-200 mid-brown eggs each year and, being friendly, make good pets.  They are a fairly hardy breed and although they are active, they require little space to forage
