We've never had Chickens before, where do we start?
You have to start somewhere! You can email us for help.
How much is shipping?
Shipping depends on your location. Shipping eggs is much cheaper than shipping chickens at point of lay or older. We can arrange couriers for the latter, but you must be within 5 hours as we don't like Chickens to be travelling for long periods.
Should we start with eggs?
If you're not experienced with Chickens you should really start with hens at Point of Lay.
What is Point of Lay?
This is a chicken who is at the age they will start to lay eggs. Usually 16+ weeks.
What is a "Grower"?
This is a chicken who is not at point of lay yet, but bigger than a little chick. Usually 6+ weeks
