Nearly finished building the chicken tractor can any help now with finding some chicks within reasonable drive from Auckland or recommendations of breeders.

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?

Hi Everyone i am now selling my Poultry Health Tonic and Natural Wormer which is what I feed to my hens to keep them healthy, the eggs strong and the hens free of worms. You can feed ad lib or sprinkle over their daily grain. As it is completly natural there is no withholding time for the eggs. It is on my Green Shopping page @

off to Raglan for Easter, and Hermione and 3 chicks may come home to
auckland with us... Unless we construct a run while we're down there...
My sister is over chickens and roosters rampaging the gardens. I'm going to integrate our shavers with our pet bantams sometime this winter. For now they are housed next to each other, part of the process of
getting to know each other again. Been finding sticky eggy bits amongst
the eggs in the laying box. Wonder if it is one chook in particular breaking and eating? Getting about 1- 3 eggs a day from 4 chooks, it's
their 2nd laying season. Midnight and Henny are laying too, pretty impressive for a cou!ple of old birds!
