We support Porridge and Rice.
Charity Number 1155841
I don't really have a farm. I don't even have a small holding. I just keep a number of small animals that I share with the public in aid of the charity Porridge and Rice a few times a year.
I live in Whitton about 10 minutes from Heathrow between Hounlsow and Twickenham. I live with my wife, 3 children, 1 dog, a number of budgies, Pekin bantams, chinchillas, various finches, guinea pigs, African Pygmy hedgehogs, diamond doves, Zebra doves, and Chinese painted quails.
I breed some of my animals to improve my stock. I sell extra animals to people looking for a pet or hobby breeders like myself. Keeping my animals is very expensive especially when they need the attention of the vet; selling extra stock helps with costs of keeping my animals, albeit only a little.
I do not sell to pet stores. I like to meet the people who buy animals from me so I can make sure they understand how to care for the animals they buy. For the same reason, I am happy for people to
I list what I have for sale when I can. If you are looking for something that I breed and it isn't listed, contact me to find out whether I have stock as it can sometimes take a while for me to update my For Sale page.
I welcome visitors by arrangement either to buy an animal or simply to take a look. If it is the latter, all I ask is a donation for the charity I support, Porridge and Rice. Please contact me if you wish to visit.
I arrange open days three to four days a year when people can visit, see and pet my animals for themselves. There
I sell fertile Pekin and Chinese Painted quail eggs when they are available. I do not post eggs; they need to be collected.
Fertile chicken and quail eggs are available free to schools in return for a donation to the charity Porridge and Rice. In addition, I have an incubator for rental to schools if they wish to hatch eggs for pupils. The rental fee goes directly to Porridge and Rice and I will rehome any unwanted chicks.
