Update 14/12/20 - Avian Influenza
Avian influenza (bird flu) outbreaks in wild birds are nothing new, and happen most winters. However, this winter there have been more outbreaks than average. Because of the extra risk this winter, DEFRA have asked that from 14th December 2020 you don't let your birds free range in your back garden. All poultry should be kept indoors or under cover in a fully netted run or coop, away from wild birds until further notice.
Update 16/11/20 - Avian Influenza
Avian influenza (bird flu) outbreaks are nothing new, and often happen during winter months.
There are a few key things that back garden poultry keepers should do as a matter of good practice anyway, but are "must do's" this winter. The key message is that you should keep wild birds (and their droppings) away from your back garden flock. If you do this, then the risk to your girls is very low and you can safely continue to enjoy chicken keeping and your tasty eggs! You can find a helpful poster from DEFRA at the bottom of this page.

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 01789850046. 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 agricultrural supplies, products and food for the upkeep and welfare of your animals e.g. poultry equipment, chicken houses, vitamins, minerals, health products, bedding and hen food (available through this web site or from our farm) 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.
