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

Like a dream only with with more feathers - Lulu,

The gingernut ranger is a hardy bird and is the most tactile breed in my experience . These friendly poultry make an eye catching addition to the flock.It is very unlikely if these fantastic birds are not at the very top of the pecking order as they are very good at putting the others in their place . The ginger ninjas (as I like to call them ) are extremely tolerant whilst handled although tent to flap if not handled properly . In all , the gingernut ranger is a hardy , easy to train , cuddly , intelligent and most of all confident bird and I would certainly recommend this breed for beginners !

Love them! - Pippa,

Doris arrived this morning with her Miss Pepperpot friend, Molly. After the lovely Omlet delivery man had set up their Eglu the girls settled straight in, ignoring two very excited dogs, and Doris has already produced her first egg. I'm absolutely delighted with both hens.
