Columbian Blacktail is a brand developed in a joint initiative between Stonegate and Waitrose and is now used exclusively by Waitrose as the brand on their own label eggs. Columbian Blacktail hens are vigorous, hardy, robust and thrive outdoors. They are bred and farmed in traditional manner with increased space to live and roam, in line with the expectations of Waitrose customers. It is a unique scheme in the UK, and we believe the world, in terms of delivering continually higher standards and fair returns for all parties involved.
