Whitley Farm is Cambrian Birds’ primary rearing site and there are 12 satellite rearers located within the area. All of our rearing fields are carefully selected to provide optimum conditions for the birds to develop. Our fields are well drained and sheltered - this coupled with the generally favourable weather conditions of the area contribute towards giving our chicks the very best start in life.

When ready our birds are let out to roam in large grass runs. Bigger than your usual run ours measure 80 feet by 20 feet we believe this will give the birds the room they need to develop and mature. Insufficient space can really inhibit a bird’s health and growth rates so we decided to remove this from the equation by enlarging our runs.
All of Cambrian Birds’ farms are overseen by Anthony who makes it his business to visit each one regularly during the first week or so from delivery of chicks. This ensures that any potential problems can be picked up on and dealt with quickly - Prevention is better than cure! This also means that Anthony can pass on his valuable knowledge to the rearers so they can learn and improve their own rearing skills as we develop the game farm enterprise into the future.
All aspects of the rearing operation have been carefully considered to ensure we can produce the best livestock, and ultimately strongest and most powerful birds for your shoot. We do everything we can to ensure the consistent quality of our stock and we believe the location of our rearing fields along with our unique coops gives us the platform to deliver.
Established for the 2016 rearing season Cambrian Birds also operate their own State of the Art hatchery. We can set in excess of 90,000 eggs per week throughout the season. We believe that having control over this aspect of a bird’s development will enable us to produce a stronger and healthier chick and ultimately a more powerful flying bird with fewer losses on the rearing field and at wood. Our own flock of laying hens also give us more control over the quality of our product and enable us to know immediately if there were any issues anywhere along our supply chain.
The first day or so of a chicks life are critical to its development and by reducing the distance and time the day old has to travel from hatchery to rearing field will certainly have a positive effect on rearing percentage and the quality of the bird throughout its life. We supply day old partridge and pheasant to our own game farm as well as all over the UK so if there is anything we can help you with then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
