On the poultry suppliers list we have most of Britain covered but not one supplier in the North East.

If you know of any, please let them know it's free to list.

I don't know many people up that way, they all come to me!!!!! lol 

Actually I do know a chap in Doncaster, is that any good?  He doesn't do many at a time, but he buys POL's in to sell on as he was going to get some from me, then had a disease problem.  Once that was sorted, his vet told him not to buy any POL's unless they were FULLY vaccinated!!!

But I can ask him what he's doing now.

Thoroughtly recommend Gatehouse Poultry. Not just for birds, they are expanding into feed and equipment. Service and prices are great. They are based near Seaham Co Durham

Thanks CDave - I'll see if they want to list

I emailed meadowsweet direct but all I got was a weird phone call from some person who didn't seem to understand what I was saying or how to read an email  :ohmy:

I live in north lincolnshire, right on the humber bank. There are a number of suppliers local to me, I have used Rand Farm Park near lincoln, Cherry Tree Farm which is just north of lincoln, and I also know of Outgate Poultry near Scunthorpe although I haven't bought from them. All are very friendly and helpful on the phone. If you are after hen houses and runs then Manor Farm Woodcraft are very good, they're in Cadney, near Brigg, they also mill their own feed which is excellent!

Hope that helps

If you could encourage them to list on the site it  would be great - it's free and there's no catch. http://www.poultry.allotment-garden.org/poultry-suppliers/add-entry.php

 The only one I had in the NE asked to be delisted because he couldn't cope after having 87 enquiries this year through the site and was only looking to sell small numbers  :(

I have had nice birds from a young chap who has a smallholding at Ellington in Northumberland. He does not seem to have email. He's not cheap, but living where I do I can't really shop around. He lets you get up to the birds and have a good choose, handling etc.

We got ours from Gatehouse Poultry too - I contacted Meadowsweet first and found the same as John - weird and rather short responses that put me off entirely, I'd never go there!  We were very nearly put off any of their agents too but I'm glad we finally went to Gatehouse, really nice people to deal with and lovely chickens.  We took our two toddlers and they happily picked out the very birds our 3 year old chose, highly recommend them (takes some perseverence to get hold of them sometimes though!!).  Just waiting for our first egg now ::)

Well do let them know they can list on here for free - since Meadowsweet themselves don't  seem to want to tell their agents. In fact she only seemed interested in extracting the name of the person who de-listed because he couldn't cope with the volume coming off the listing on here, which I didn't think appropriate to pass on. The person had de-listed after all.
