Baby Chickens, Chicken Coops, Feeders & More
Chickens Offer a Range of Benefits for Your Garden
Haven’t we all yearned for a bit of the country.....?
We decided 3 years ago that chickens were and integral part of the backyard self sufficiency plan for our customers. What a great addition they are to our extensive range of Heritage vegie seeds and Heritage fruit trees. Two or three hens make wonderful pets when they grow from a fluffy chick, to a proud shiny bird. They will help keep your garden:
- Pest free
- Eat your household scraps
- Produce wonderful organic manure
- Provide your children with constant entertainment, teaching them responsibility and care for animals.
- Supply the family with fresh, chemical free, nutritious eggs
You will always remember the look on your children’s faces as they run up to you beaming and clutching their very 1st freshly laid egg!!! From the beginning of October we carry, guaranteed female, Australorp, Rhode Island Red, and White Leghorn cross chicks.
We do not have the baby chicks in the Nursery once the weather gets cold.. usually between May and the end of September we take a break, as it is WAY TOO cold for those gorgeous little ones here in Canberra. Be sure to contact us before you come out if you are in doubt.
We Stock 100% Certified Organic Chicken Feed from Country Heritage Feeds insuring that your girls get the absolute best food available !!!
We carry all the essentials, ie: Feeders and Drinkers too !!!
Once you've chosen your baby chicks you will need to provide them with a Cosy and Safe Environment to call home. Initially they will need to stay indoors with Lights to keep them snug and warm. Once they have their true feathers you will be able to house them outdoors. We have 2 styles of REALLY CUTE Chicken Coops that will provide your feathered friends with a home to be proud of. Our Coops are Attractive and Well made and will be a charming addition to your productive Garden. They are sold as a flat pack and are simple to assemble. Delivery can be arranged if they do not fit in your vehicle. The days of Rusty old iron and shabby boards are strictly passe... our adorable Coops are really something to crow about!!!
While you are visiting the Nursery, have a wander down the back and say hello to our 3 Resident chooks... Rhonda, Louise and Black Betty... these girls have grown up here from little baby chicks They are VERY friendly and enjoy a visit, and It's a great way for the kids to see the end result... they may even spot an egg !!!!
