Anyone know where to get (live!) chickens In Sydney? Ethical and local would be great, but will ...

.. travel for chooks. We're building them a special house as i type and im thinking about 12 all up. I gear the Chook Chick is awesome but she's hard to get a hold of. Any other ideas?

  • Hi David,
    Depends on what you're after....
    For standard laying birds - Isa Browns, Australorps etc try:
    Kensington Produce
    Enfield Produce
    I got some beautiful chooks from a breeder out past Camden whose contacts I got from Macarthur Produce, Camden.
    There's an Australorp breeder out at Windsor.
    There are hatcheries around but I visited one and was not impressed with how the birds were treated.
    For more interesting breeds check out the Easter Show & meet the breeders. Also there are poultry clubs that will help you out with contacts.
    Cheers,
    Steve

  • Not a bad idea - I was thinking it might be a way to try out he Isa Brown ladies without committing 100 % to that variety.

  • Try calling animal liberation, as they can source chickens that have been rescued from battery farms or bad homes and they need loving happy homes.
