Al's Eggs n' More is run by Charlie Avent and partner Alan Bond who live with their two young boys in the beautiful stannary town of Tavistock. Both come from an agricultural background and have a great knowledge of everything chicken! Starting as a hobby in 2009, chicken keeping quickly turned into chicken breeding and in 2010 the couple decided to make the chickens earn their keep – that’s when Als’ Eggs n’ More hatched!
Al's Eggs n' More are DEFRA registered and purchase their breeding stock from reputable breeders to ensure good health and bloodlines. Together they breed and sell a variety of rare breed poultry from chicks to Point of Lay as well as hatching eggs; they sell direct to existing owners, first time chicken keepers, other breeders and collectors, and via eBay.
Their land is situated close to Tavistock on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, an idyllic 11.5 acres of field nestled in the wide open moor. All of the chickens are kept free range on grass but segregated into separate breeding pens where the cockerels have access to a minimum of two hens. The priorities of Al’s Eggs n’ More is to provide healthy, true to type chickens, bred in an ethical and natural environment.
