Introducing the "Coral Nova" - Eden's new variety of point of lay chicken

The Coral Nova is an attractive hen with white plumage, laying a cream coloured egg. She can produce up to 355 eggs during an 80 week period of lay. Larger and heavier than the popular White Nova, as a docile and friendly girl she is more suited to family situations.

Eden Livestock has chosen these point of lay (POL) hybrid pullets as being particularly suited to both domestic and free-range environments, small or large scale. These colourful, hardy, point of lay chickens also offer a variety of attractive breed types, plumage and coloured eggs.

Based on traditional utility poultry farmyard favourites, including Rhode Island Red, Light Sussex, French Maran and Italian Leghorn, the hens have been carefully selected over generations to combine the stamina and reliability of modern hybrid hens with the attractive looks of traditional pure breeds plus the additional choices of coloured eggs.

All pullets are supplied at point of lay (POL), aged 16 weeks minimum, and fully vaccinated. They are professionally reared to Freedom Foods and Lion Code welfare standards.

These chickens are extremely popular and sell out quickly. Reserving pullets in advance is advised. A deposit may be required. For further information or to reserve hens please click on the link at the bottom of the page.
