Price is per pullet and includes GST. Minimum order of 3 pullets. Bag of feed will need to be ordered separately or collected and paid for when pullets are picked up.  Chicks Choice  (fresh feed is best) Collection needs to be on the dates specified. We cannot grow then on to point of lay. PICK UP ONLY from our Brightwater Store in Mt Heslington Road.  We cannot courier livestock.  Please do not place an order if you cannot collect. If you cancel your pullet pre-order you will be charged a cancellation fee of $5 per pullet + a shopify payments cancellation fee of 3.6% if your payment was made online by card. Pay by internet banking to avoid this cancellation charge. Thank you. PICK UP ONLYIf purchasing pullets from us they will need to go with a bag of the same feed that they have been on and are accustomed too. This means one less stress when they move to their new home and coop.  It is company policy and in the best interests of the fowl they go to their new home with a bag of Chicks Choice.  Please do not place an order if you are not happy to purchase a bag of feed with your pullets. We are happy to advise with tips and advice on getting your new girls settled in. It is important to be aware that if you have purchased pullets that are POL or just started laying they will go off the lay for a while once they move homes. This is perfectly normal as their routine has been interrupted and they need to adjust to a new perch, new flock mates and new surroundings. All our brown shavers have been vaccinated as day-old chicks at the hatchery. They are injected with Marek’s and sprayed with Megan®Salmonella Vac 1 vaccine. They are flock birds and live in family groups so keeping one or two is not really ideal, especially if you lose one and the last one is then left on its own. If we do keep them longer for you the cost goes up $3 per week. Our brown shaver girls are happy and healthy and raised with care.They are shed raised and once-off heat (and a good size!) we let them outside to start enjoying their greens, fresh air, sunshine and all the other delights of being a free-range chook. We raise them on a premium quality chick feed - Weston Chicks Choice. They are best feed on this up to 18 weeks or point of lay. They have this quality feed available at all times for optimum growth. We find the Weston Milling feed to be the best feed as it contains both naturally occurring ruminant proteins (blood, meat and bone meal) and vegetable-based proteins. Feeding quality feed for the first 18 weeks makes all the difference and will grow good, strong, healthy birds.  Good, strong, healthy birds if well looked after and kept on premium layer pellets will reward you with many eggs.

  • Appletons De-Mite Powder available in 350g, 1kg, 5kg Appletons De-Mite Powder 350g

    De-Mite Powder | Appletons

    73 reviews

    For long-lasting residual control of red mite and other external parasites in poultry housing. Dust on perches and in nesting areas in poultry houses. The mites will crawl through the powder to get to the birds. The powder scratches the red mites waxy outer covering of their exoskeletons causing them to slowly dehydrate and die. This product is 100% natural, DE based and can be used safely in organic systems. There is no withholding period for meat or eggs. We recommend first sanitising the hen house with Poultry Safeguard Concentrate or Smite Concentrate or Poultry Shield and when surfaces are dry apply the Appletons De-Mite Powder. Use hand application (wear a glove!) or our handy powder applicator and sprinkle/rub on perches and in nest box bedding. Apply to floor litter only if birds huddle/sleep on the floor at night. Dust Appletons De-Mite Powder into all the corners and timber joins around the house, perches, nest boxes. We apply weekly to our hen houses and coops to keep on top of the mites. Can also be used effectively in poultry dust bowls/baths to aid with external parasite control. For the control of red mites in your poultry houses, we recommend using Appletons De-Mite Powder. Available in 350g, 1kg and 5kg.

    Poultry Safeguard Concentrate | Appletons

    132 reviews

    Our best selling coop cleaner. Red mites reproduce rapidly. These nasty bugs don’t live on your chickens but hide in the framework of your coop, perches and nest boxes, only coming out at night to feed on the blood of your birds. The result is they become stressed, suffering anaemia, reducing egg production and even death if not treated. Red mites are also very difficult to control, so Appletons have developed Poultry Safeguard which dissolves mites on contact. It’s also a powerful disinfectant, killing bacteria, viruses and odour in coops.Appletons Poultry Safeguard is New Zealand made and best of all it is very economical. It is a concentrate which you mix with water as you need it - you get approximately 64 litres of maintenance solution from our 1-litre containers and as a mite treatment approximately 20 litres, and that makes it a lot more cost-effective when compared to other similar available products.Poultry Safeguard is a blend of high foaming surfactants, sequestrates and alkaline builders and quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs) which effectively dissolves waxy accumulations and is effective against a range of microbes (including Avian Influenza Virus, Avian Infectious Bronchitis and Newcastle’s disease) and micro-organisms including bacteria, mildew, moulds and fungi. There is no egg withholding period which is great as you can let your hens back in to lay.The ultimate solution to a mite-free hen house. No other cleaner does the job better! Available in 500ml, 1L and 5L Concentrate bottles

We recommend every 4 to 12 weeks. Please wear a nose and mouth protector when undertaking this job due to all the fine dander and dust particles which could carry all sorts of nasty bacteria or fungi. We use a wide-mouthed shovel brush, pan, paint scraper and big plastic bin to clean our houses. Remove the bulk of litter using the shovel and then sweep out the rest with a brush and pan and then using a scrapper remove any necessary stubborn bits. Sweep out. Mix up Poultry Safeguard Concentrate to the correct dilution (see instructions on the bottle) and spray onto dry timbers. For residual red mite control, we recommend using Appletons De-Mite Powder in your hen house on a regular basis. If your hen house smells bad and is attracting flies then something is not working. A chook house should have no odour and be a sweet-smelling home for your chooks. How to Clean an Omlet Chicken CoopEmpty the dropping tray out regularly (daily if you prefer or weekly) and replace with a thin layer of fresh wood shavings. Once a month we recommend cleaning roosting bars and droppings tray with cleaning out the nest box. Washing the plastic trays and bars is recommended. This is a good time to check for red mite and other creepy crawlies! For residual control dust roosting bars, perch rails and nest box bedding with Appletons De-Mite Powder. Every 3 to 6 months we recommend giving your eglu a thorough clean from top to toe. We use a water blaster for this set on a wide-angle nozzle.  Poultry Safeguard used at is maintenance dose works well. Please rinse well with potable water. Your Egu should look as good as new after its clean!

Fenugreek Trigonella foenum-graecumFenugreek is an annual plant that is grown mainly in India, Pakistan, and China. Fernugreek seeds possess many beneficial effects such as hypoglycemic, anti-helminthic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties. Nutritional-wise, fenugreek is a rich source of protein, fatty acids, and minerals such as phosphorus, iron, zinc, magnesium, and calcium. It also contains many flavonoids, polysaccharides, saponins, and alkaloids (trigonelline and choline). Specific applications studied in poultry include: Antidiabetic: Fenugreek contains an amino acid called 4-hydroxy isoleucine, which works to normalize glucose metabolism by increasing the body's production of insulin when blood sugar levels are high. Anti-stress: A research study conducted on broilers showed that their body weight increased significantly and had improved feed conversion ratios when they were provided higher amounts of fenugreek seed powder in their diet (10 to 40 g/kg). Kelp boosts the immune system and increases energy.Fenugreek is an excellent anti-stress remedy. Bladderwrack or Kelp is high in antioxidants, including carotenoids and flavonoids, which help fight against disease-causing free radicals. Antioxidant minerals, such as manganese and zinc, help combat oxidative stress and may help protect cardiovascular health and prevent cancer. By adding sea kelp to your flock's diet, you have the opportunity to improve their nutrition, boost their immune response and promote egg laying.  In the diet of chickens kelp can improve immunity, antioxidant capacity and performance. Siberian Ginseng is a popular herbal plant widely used for its variety of effects in both traditional and research-based medicines. It benefits are anti-fatigue, anti-oxidant, hepatoprotective, anti-tumour and anti-inflammatory.

    Poultry Shell Grit | Appletons

    18 reviews

    Yes, we recommend giving shell grit to your hens! We feed out Weston Layer pellets to our laying birds and the soluble calcium levels in this commercial feed are adequate for eggs production with sound shells. However for those birds that are in enclosed runs and do not have access to large areas of free-range we provide shell grit separately. Shell grit has 3 benefits over the soluble limestone they add in the feed. The hard shell bits act as teeth in the gizzard to assist in grinding up the feed and aids digestion. The intake of calcium from the shells helps strengthen the shell of the chicken eggs. Plus trace elements from the sea will be beneficial to their diet At Appletons we fill a small pot planter (or an old pottery dish with a hole in it) secured by a wire stake in the ground (so the birds don't knock it over!) with our fine shell grit. Don't forget to line it with some weed mat to contain the grit so it does not all wash out!   Available in a 2kg or a 5kg bag.

    Wood Shavings | Bedding

    47 reviews

    Reap the benefits of using untreated wood shavings. Also ideal for raising chicks and in nest boxes. We recommend the use of wood shavings in a deep litter bed system. Shavings are better than wood chip or sawdust as shavings offer nice curls of timber rather than dust or chips. Deep litter is a term used to describe the floor of a chook house where loose dry material (wood shavings) are used. If mixed with chicken manure and additional dry litter as required, deep litter will not need removing for 6 to 12 months. If looked after, deep litter has no smell and ends up as beautiful compost (with no added weeds!) We do not recommend the use of hay or straw in a deep bed litter system. It is not as effective as wood shavings in absorbing moisture and carries possible mould and fungi spores which can affect the respiratory health of pets (and humans!)

Analysis: 18% crude protein, 3% fat, 4% fibre, 2% salt  We have moved over to Weston Free Range Layer Pellets from Peak Layer Pellets as this bag contains 1% more crude protein and is $1 cheaper than the Peak Layer Pellets. In every other way it is identical to Peak Layer. Your hens will be very happy on it.

    102 reviews

    Premium feed for layers. A complete nutritional pellet for good quality egg production. Laying hens require a balance of protein, energy, minerals and vitamins to ensure optimum production of good size and number, yolk colour and strong shells. Good sized pellets.   Perfect for bantams and light and heavy breeds. This is a high protein pellet with ruminant protein: contains blood and bone meal and blood meal. Feed out all year round to your laying hens.  Analysis: 17% crude protein, 3% fat, 4% fibre, 2% salt We have moved over to Weston Free Range Layer Pellets from Peak Layer Pellets as this bag contains 1% more crude protein and is $1 cheaper than the Peak Layer Pellets. In every other way it is identical to Peak Layer so your hens will be very happy on it. More protein is good for them and egg production and a $1 savings is even better 😊  Weston Milling Stockfeed has the point of difference over most other brands as it is the only commercial poultry feed (here on the South Island) that contains quality ruminant proteins. We see the results in our poultry every day and it is good to hear the positive feedback from our customers once they start using Weston Premium Layer Pellets. ​MUST NOT BE FEED TO RUMINANTS "contains ruminant protein" Yes, we can courierPlease note all our 25kg bags are sent out in large heavy-duty plastic bags 😊Please re-cycle these where you can ♻️

  • Weston Chook Grow Pellets 25kg Chook Grow Pellets 25kg | Weston

    Chook Grow Pellets 25kg | Weston

    For pullets being reared for table egg production. A formulation with essential nutrients of protein, energy and minerals in readiness for a healthy, productive laying life. Chook Grow is a complete feed formulated as a follow-on feed from Weston Chicks Choice. At Appletons we prefer to grow our birds (both commercial hybrids and heritage) on to point of lay using the Weston Chicks Choice as it has higher levels of protein essential for health, growth and feather production. Chickens do not stop growing at 8 weeks. We would only recommend swopping over to Chook Grow if you personally had issues with the coccidiostat added to the Chicks Choice or are feeding a range of ages of poultry together in one pen and you have laying hens that have access to the same feed. Chook Grow does not contain any coccidiostat (which the Chicks Choice does) There is a 3 to 4% difference in the protein levels which we feel is significant – so if you can keep them on the Chicks Choice then that is what we recommend.  Analysis: 15% crude protein, 3% fat, 4% fibre, 1% salt Weston Milling Stockfeed has the point of difference over most other brands as it is the only commercial poultry feed (here on the South Island) that contains quality ruminant proteins. We see the results in our poultry every day and it is good to hear the positive feedback from our customers once they start using Weston Milling poultry feed.  Please note we do not usually keep Chook Grow in stock at our store. If you would like a bag please let us know we will need a week to order it in.
