Stacy helped me out A LOT. I've been holding out on this review to see how well the 2 hens I bought off of her do and wow, the golden comets are laying jumbo eggs almost every day! Oh did I mention the 2 rabbits I got off her the same day are doing very well too! I'm waiting to get a call or email to come up and get 2 more!read more
From the informative website to the careful selection of duck breeds, everything about my purchase was top-notch. I drove about two hours to get four healthy 3-day-old female ducklings of various breeds and I was not disappointed. I also purchased a 25-lb bag of starter feed, which was excellent. My ducks are thriving and my experience at the farm was splendid. These are friendly, efficient, capable folks. Highly recommend!read more

Went to a poultry swap earlier in the day, hoping to find Guineas. Since there were none there, I Google searched & found Dunreath Farms. The lady was very friendly & nice, & agreed to meet us in short notice. We arrived in about 10 minutes, and she was there to greet us. The Guinea hatchery area was clean (that’s RARE), and the birds all seemed healthy. That was 3 weeks ago, and the Guineas are growing fast & very healthy. I would recommend Dunreath to anyone!read more

I originally went to Dunreath Farms to purchase ducklings and discovered they also had rabbits. I had plans to purchase a rabbit from a different breeder, but was educated on the American Blue breed by Stacey. I have owned several other breeds in the past, but had never heard of the American Blue. Stacy gave me a history of the breed being originally bred for fur and said they were an extremely friendly and social breed. After doing research on my own I returned the next week to purchase my little girl, Indigo. Everything Stacey told me was true! She is the sweetest rabbit I have ever owned and is already litter box trained after barely 2 weeks! She comes running to me when I call and I can even let her outside un-penned without fear of having to chase her to pick her up. She and the ducklings I purchased from Stacy have made wonderful additions to the family and I will be purchasing another rabbit from Stacy in the next couple months.

I recently adopted a bunny from this farm and my experience was wonderful! When I went to meet the bunnies, Stacy, took the time (about an hour and a half!) to talk with me and my boyfriend about bunny care and any questions I may have. When I decided on my bunny, the farm was more than happy to hold him for a week so I could bunny-proof my home and get the proper supplies. I can't recommend this farm enough, they are kind, knowledgeable, and supportive.read more
They were absolutely amazing. I picked up six Golden Comets this weekend and four ducklings. They took the time to explain care and handling to me as these are my first backyard birds. I will most definitely return to the farm!read more

My wife and I have dealt with them for a few years now. We've gotten one of our hens and 4 ducks from them. They are always very helpful and knowledgeable. And the feed they carry is by far the best. After losing my job the wife and I thought wed save a few bucks by switching to the local chain store brand of poultry feed. Boy did we regret it. Wasnt long before our poor birds werent looking as good as they did before, they werent laying as often and a couple of them were a complete mess. Needless to say, we came back to Dunreath for this wonderful layer feed that only they carry. Thanks so much Steve and Stacey for all of your help, knowledge and good care you take for your customers and our precious animals. You guys are the best!!!read more
Very friendly and knowledgeable. Greatly appreciated the time she took to talk to me about the breed and easing my mind about introducing them to my already established flock. Will return for more and maybe even some ducks.read more

Can't recommend Dunreath enough. Wonderful people who clearly love the animals they raise. This is the best place in Central Virginia poultry, waterfowl and feed. Can't wait for our next visit!read more
I’ve only lived in the area about a year and I wanted to let everyone know what outstanding customer service Steve and Stacey at Dunreath farm provide. They operate by the golden rule dealing with their customers the way they’d want to be treated. I purchased baby ducks and geese in April. The geese weren’t the right fit for our family and I wasn’t really sure what could be done. When I contacted Dunreath today they went above and beyond in helping me find a solution. In today’s world of big box stores it’s refreshing to find a business that operates honestly, fairly and with integrity. I can’t say enough about the kind of top notch people Stacey and Steve are and I would highly recommend their knowledgeable service. You won’t regret it.read more
I bought four 20 week old Golden Comets on Saturday from here. They are such docile, sweet birds. They laid 4 eggs as soon as I put them in their coop on Saturday and every day since! Would highly recommend this breed and Dunreath Farm.read more

Absolutely love this farm. I got my first chickens from it last year, three wonderful, beautiful, and healthy hens. I recently had a predator kill two of my girls. I went today and per usual, they were incredibly friendly and helpful and gave me advice as to how to bait and trap the likely culprit. I now have three new Golden Comet girls, all absolutely gorgeous and already very friendly. This farm is my absolute go-to for animals, as their birds are healthy and hardy and the farm is gorgeous!read more

Very pleasant experience. Very nice to deal with. Will be coming back to purchase more.
I LOVE the chicken feed and scratch! Well, I should say, my chickens love it! Very affordable and what a difference it makes in my layers! the eggs before changing them over to this feed had a softer shell and a lighter colored yolk. Now, after one 100lb bag of feed, the eggs are much richer in color and the shells are firm. The birds KNOW the difference! Try it and you won't be disappointed. Many Thanks!read more

Since I've discovered this family run business it's the only place I'll be buying feed or any poultry in the future. There non GMO feed is top notch and my chickens love it. I also purchased a couple of there golden comets, who after a couple weeks of settling in with the rest of the flock have become my two best layers, giving me two dark brown eggs almost every day. On top of that the owners have always been friendly and willing to answer any questions I've had about there chickens or feed. All around nice place and friendly people.read more

I bought four Golden Comet chickens from them in March and they have turned out to be the sweetest, easiest, healthiest animals I have ever owned. The girls each lay a beautiful brown egg a day. I haven't bought store bought eggs for me and my family since April. The experience at the farm is always professional and the service is given with a smile. I continue to buy feed for my chickens specifically from them due to the convenient hours of operation and the friendly and knowledgeable service. The girls are doing amazing on the complete feed they sell and their eggs are strong and delicious. I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for quality chickens. Keep up the good work guys!read more

I absolutely love this Farm the staff here is all family-oriented and very knowledgeable about many different breeds of poultry and small mammals. They sell wonderfully taking care of hens. Recently I purchased 6 golden Comet hens all in beautiful condition and they have not disappointed me yet. The feed they sell is also very high quality for an extremely affordable price. I will definitely make the 40-minute drive back to dunreath Farms if they need more feed, or other poultry related products.read more
I have gotten guinea hens here and continue to buy all of my feed here. The feed is so much better than anywhere else and is so reasonably priced. The family is always so pleasant and it is always a lovely experience going there. Cannot say enough good things about themread more
2 1/2 months ago, I bought two Dominiques and one Golden Comet and I honestly could not recommend any other farm more. I was searching locally for older birds, as I could not house chicks at the time and the 18-week-old Doms and the 19-week old GC were perfect. About two weeks after purchase, the Comet started laying and has laid pretty much every day since, with the Dominiques following shortly after. They are such friendly, healthy, and hardy birds; and are very forgiving of my shortcomings and troubleshooting as a first-time chicken keeper. The only 'complaint' is that my Golden Comet's eggshells are TOO hard and require a second crack to open! I recently expanded my coop and run as the girls have matured, and I'm hoping to add more birds soon, as I now have room for 2-3 more. My first choice is another Golden Comet, and I'm hoping they'll have Ameraucanas ready to go by then! I cannot thank Dunreath enough for gifting me with beautifully healthy and happy birds and a fantastic feed to start out with! Thank you all so much!read more
My husband and I love everything about this farm and these two incredible people. We have 6 mixed variety hens and as of yesterday, an Americano rooster (for my husband's birthday) from Dunreath Farm. We are so thankful for such a sweet couple who run an amazing homestead. These two love and care for their animals and you can tell from the moment you meet them. Thank you Steve and Stacey for not only our chickens but for being such great folks who we will continue to come back and give business to :)read more
We bought our 2 Rhode Island Reds and 4 Golden Comets there a week ago. The Golden Comets are the sweetest and friendliest chickens I have ever met. They greet me every time I approach the coop/run. They are even gentle enough that they don't mind my children or I holding them. The owners were extremely helpful and answered all my questions and helped make sure I was set up with the appropriate accessories. It was definitely worth the 90 minute drive and will be back when their Ameraucana and Buff Orpingtons are ready.read more
Stacey was beyond helpful in helping us pick out rabbits for our expanding farm & I feel confident that she will be a continued resource for us as we learn and grow! The feed Stephen gets is so fresh, all our birds love it! We have a little big farm, so we visit Dunreath monthly. It is such a great resource, with honest, helpful farmers that love to pass on knowledge as well as healthy, happy animals! Thank you so much!read more
I bought 4 golden comet chickens from them on March 18th. These girls are amazing! Very sweet chickens and I get an egg a day everyday! The service at the farm was very friendly and fast.

They will definitely be my go to for all my future chickens and chicken needs!read more
I have been a poultry connoisseur for about 20 years. Thought I knew birds inside and out until I met the knowledgeable Chippendales! They taught me quite a bit and have me hooked on their farm!

Excellent food for my flock and great stock to start or add to a flock.

We have and always will be Dunreath customers!!read more

I am very particular over all of my animals... I highly recommend Dunreath Farm!read more

We buy our henn food here and bought 4 of our best layers. The couple that operates the farm are VERY helpfull and VERY friendly.
My daughter and I got 2 Golden Comet hens last week; they are terrific birds! They fast made great friends for our lonely Orpington and all 3 are happily chasing bugs, enjoying the sun and living the good [chicken] life. The owners couldn't have been nicer! We drove out to the farm on a Sunday and arrived about 30 minutes before closing just as an unexpected, drenching storm blew in. We offered to come back at another time, but Steve and Stacey wouldn't hear of it. While we stayed safe and dry in the barn, they donned rain gear and brought us our chickens. We look forward to going back to get non GMO 5 grain scratch feed -and maybe a couple of Ameraucanas in April! Thanks, Steve and Stacey! (PS They have great, competitive prices, too!)read more

This farm rocks! I feel so lucky to have been recommended to use this farm for getting chickens for the first time. Steve and Stacey were above and beyond awesome. My daughter and I went out to the farm to pick up 3 Golden Comets. Stacey and Steve were so helpful and friendly! The Golden Comets are beautiful & healthy and just like they were described on the website. They made good friends with me as well as my daughter and her friends in no time. Allowing us to handle them all the time and following us around the yard like shadows. They give us 3 beautiful brownish red eggs a day and they are delicious. We even get a JUMBO egg every once in a while! The Non GMO layer feed is great and preferred by our gals after trying two other brands that were recommended by a friend and fellow chicken keeper.

Great people, very concerned with their animal's welfare. They will work with you to get you exactly what you need, and give you advice and options that suit your lifestyle and situation.

They have competitive prices and great customer service.read more
I had looked for a month for Pekin Ducklings, that were hatched in a clean environment, I finally came upon this farm and the owner Stacey was very passionate about everything they do and made sure to keep in touch with us when they finally had week old Pekins. We made our trip up to Ashland and I ended up falling in love with Goslings instead and she told me since I wanted just a pet they would be perfect and she was right. I have fallen in love! They follow me around my yard as if I were their real mother. I have to say this is by far the most amazing experience of my life. If your thinking about Ducks, Chickens, etc. then give them a call you won't regret it!!!!read more
