NARF produces and maintains poultry lines for use in scientific research.

NARF can supply a quote for eggs and/or birds for inclusion in grant submissions.

Please let us know if you want further information on any of these lines or are interested in a collaboration based on our expertise.


Please contact to order eggs and chicks, or if you are interested in ordering genetically altered eggs and chicks. At present, we ship eggs within the UK and can discuss shipping to other European countries.

If you are in the USA, please contact Susan Chapman at Clemson University if interested in using the cytoplasmic GFP reporter line (Roslin Green).

Egg production is time-consuming and supplies can vary, so your patience is appreciated.

We welcome feedback from collaborators and new users and use it to guide our research and development of new poultry lines. Please send feedback to
