Poultry online

Just wondering where I can buy poultry online and they deliver to Offaly or a courier who would pick them up for me.
I can't travel now due to a disability and use to get hens from a farmer but he sold his farm so now nowhere where someone would deliver hens or poultry. So thought maybe could buy a large batch online but none of them deliver to Offaly. And free-range poultry don't go to my house.

I tried them and they dont deliver near me and I found the guy rude as I asked was there anyway they could deliver to me as they only deliver to the mart and would not come to my house about 30mins away so have to keep looking.

And I am mostly on my own so no one can go to the mart for me. And the neighbour is unhelpful.

Hi "Eire" Gerard here from O'Leary Poultry. I do not recall talking to you and I take offence being called rude.
We only go to Co.Offaly on a rare occassion and as yet have not been up that direction in 2020.
If we do go to a location, its designated pick up points for collection and we would have at least 10 in a day and can rarely do housecalls esp if they are 30 mins away from pick up point.
If I'm being honest I dont believe you contacted us. In saying that i hope you get sorted but try not 'drag our name through the mud" in the process

Hi eire, sorry to hear you are having problems getting poultry. Hope you get sorted soon, just to comment that I have purchased poultry on several occasions from O Leary Poultry and always found Gerald very helpful. He even waited one dark evening for me to get to his delivery point. Excellent quality pullets and always willing to spend time advising a novice. Hope someone will help you.
