I got my brown shavers from Drury pet supplies and am really happy with them. they are fat and friendly and lay every day.

Just in case you're interested in adopting ex-battery hens you can sign up for emails from where people and post notices when they are looking for or wanting to rehome chooks, often for free. We were originally going to get purebred chooks because they're 'prettier' but after adopting our ex-batt and now having to give away our surplus eggs OVER WINTER I would go ex-batts again in a heartbeat. Our 2yr and 5yr old boys love them too - they're incredibly affectionate (if chooks can be) and are happy for the boys to pick them up and pat them. Not at all what I expected - I'm definitely an advocate for adopting ex-batt hens!

Just wondering - anyone here had an encounter with Marek's disease? Does it occur in the NZ poultry population or not?

Hi there have just found your group. i have 15+ chooks on our suburban property in Trentham. Upper Hutt. Mostly big breeds and a mix of types. We have 4 eggs a day from them at the moment due to the time of year. My kids have special birds each that have shown at our annual poultry show this year, so did i and we all took home prizes. Fun!

hello Lesley, re your message to the group about introducing new chickens, in my limited experience any new chickens introduced into an established group will upset the pecking order for a while and there will most likely be some fighting but they get over it eventually

I need to choose between 2 roosters soon, I have a barnevelder and a brown leghorn, both have yet to crow and not aggressive with each other yet, but which one?
