Quail by mail recycled chicken family!

Browse main article categories

chicken made in engladn for recycled materialOne of my favourite online stores, Quail by Mail has launched a range of quirky animal friends to adorn your homes!

Usually associated with ethical, fairtrade and organic fashion, Quail have branched out to give younger visitors something to fall in love with!

Made in England

Durable enough for use as a toy, all of Quail’s products are designed and made in England, so the carbon footprint is super low.

The free range chicken is my favourite! Made in London from recycled materials, each mother hen holds her three chicks in her wing pockets. These chicken families fit in the palm of your hand so you can sit and gaze at them adoringly.


Ok, they would make a lovely present for a child, but my inner child is throwing a tantrum to own one too!

Each one is unique and costs just £14.95 for the family.

For a second year running The Guardian has recommended Quail in its ‘Ethical Fashion Directory’.
Why not take a look at the site and let me know what you think?
