Update 14/04/20 -
Our lovely customers that have tried to call us on the phone over the last three weeks will know that our phone lines are very busy. Today we launched our "click & collect" service. You can now pay for feed, bedding & poultry via this website before coming to the Domestic Fowl Trust. This makes complying with social distancing easy.
Pay online, wait for the email, come to site & everything will be ready for you. And we'll do it same day if you order before 2pm! (If you are "click & collect"ing live birds you will still need to talk to us when you get here, but you wont need to get out of your car, we will stay 3 meters away from you and will be wearing masks).
If you'd prefer, you can still call us on 07393632965 or 017898500476 and we'll take your order over the phone, but please be patient as our phones are so busy!

We have good stocks of layers pellets, mixed corn, treats, medications, equipment and bedding for your birds. Any birds available will be stated as "In stock" on this website & listed on our Facebook Page.
Rest assured, as long as it is legal & safe to do so, we will continue to remain open and fully stocked with hen food & bedding for your flock and other animals.
Covid 19 and us -
We now ask that you do not get out of your car while on site, unless invited to do so. We will come to you & bring your feed & other items to you. We no longer take cash. We sanitise the credit card machine between customers & have put it behind a perspex screen in our carpark. We will keep 3 meters from you & wear masks.
Alternatively, place your order in advance & pay over the phone by calling on 07393632965. We will get your order ready for you to collect from our car park. Please be patient, as our phone line is very busy.
We're staying open so you have animal feed, but also want to play our part to slow the spread of this thing, so our NHS can cope.
Thank you to all our wonderful customers
The Domestic Fowl Trust exists to encourage the keeping of poultry & help new owners discover the joys of having their own hens. We sell a large range of poultry equipment, chicken houses, health products, bedding and hen food (available through this web site) as well as a range of different breeds of chickens especially suitable for a small flock & domestic keeper.
The Domestic Fowl Trust raises most of its own birds. The very small number of breeders that supply the Domestic Fowl Trust demonstrate a continual commitment to high welfare standards and must maintain stock traceability.
Established in 1976, the Domestic Fowl Trust is now based at Bell Brook Farm in Snitterfield Warwickshire. The proprietors, Alister Jones and Beccy Smith are both experienced farmers and poultry producers having earned a reputation for producing high quality rare and traditional breeds of poultry for the trade from Bell Brook Farm. Integrating the Domestic Fowl Trust into the Bell Brook Farm operation was an obvious and natural step. The Domestic Fowl Trust is now set up for great things to come. Keep an eye on the Domestic Fowl Trust Facebook page for the latest news, competitions and special offers.
