Beautiful cheeky chick - Eileen,

14 weeks ago, I had 8 baby chicks hatch. The eggs came as a mixed selection so finding out the breeds has been an interesting journey. There was one lovely little chick I couldn't identify. I called her my "cheeky chick". She follows me everywhere and if I bend down, will take every opportunity to jump on my knee or back. I have recently found out she is a Gingernut and what an apt name for her. She is a wonderful bird and loves to be cuddled. I don't know about her egg laying yet as she is only a baby. I think she would be perfect for children.


What a lovely bird - Clare, Derbyshire,

We have only had our GNR for 2 weeks (kept with an equally lovely Lohmann Brown) but she is super. Understandably a little wary for the first few days but now well and truly settled in; friendly, funny and laying an egg most days. Recommend this breed for first-time chicken keepers. The Lohmann Brown gets my vote too; even more friendly and funny!! A sweet little twosome :-)


Prolific egg laying chickens. Superb overall. - Dominic,

Fantastic bird - Amy, Derbyshire,

Perfect for beginners, super friendly, great with kids, great layers, wonderful


- Lisa, Cheshire,

I have a mixed flock and my ginger ninjas are by far the cheekiest and friendliest of all my girls. Theyll follow me round the garden and are always trying to get into the kitchen. They enjoy being picked up and will happily jump on the chairs with us when were sat outside. They lay every day even in freezing weather. These were the first chooks I bought and theyre the ones that got me hooked
