Appletons specialize in everything CHICKEN and more from incubation to point of lay. If thinking of keeping chickens and not sure where to start talk to us we can set you up with everything you need to keep chooks in your backyard. We specialize in premium poultry and animal housing - quality, pre-made, pre-assembled kitsets being our speciality. We have a fantastic range of poultry supplies both on-line and in-store and stock everything from incubators and brooding equipment to feeders, drinkers, healthcare products and premium poultry feed. If looking for layers we stock the prolific brown shavers. Here at Appletons our dedication to preserving the heritage breeds has grown and we are working hard to improve and keep these breeds going for future generations. We also stock rabbit and small animal housing, rabbit supplies and breed the beautiful flemish giant rabbits.
We are delighted to be in partnership with Omlet UK. They designed a revolutionary new chicken house which made it simpler to keep chickens in gardens. It looked rather like an igloo and in a moment of punning genius that would define the next generation of chicken keepers, they named it the Eglu and an icon was born. Since then Omlet’s designs have delighted thousands of pets and their owners around the world through their uncompromising attention to detail and innovative ideas. Omlet re-imagines the way we live with and look after our pets to bring us closer together. Omlet design rabbit hutches which allow rabbits to express their natural behaviour, Eglu chicken coops keep our chickens safe and the Fido Studio and Qute mouse house which looks great in any living room, kitchen or bedroom bringing our pets into the heart of the house. And now new to their range is the Zippi Rabbit Tunnel System, Runs & Playpens offering everything your pet rabbit or guinea pig needs to feel safe, secure and adventurous.
Everyone at Appletons is committed to providing you and your pets with fantastic products and top quality service because you are just as important to us as we know your chooks and pets are to you. We’d love to hear from you so send an email to email@example.com with feedback, questions or suggestions.
"Thank you very much.
For all those out there contemplating the delight of keeping a few chooks.
Appletons is THE place to start. Nothing but friendly and helpful advice from the first phone call until the last egg.
The Ultimate Coop on Wheels seemed a little costly when I saw it on their website but I can promise you it is not. All the little problems that I recall from an A Frame house years ago, have all been designed out. This coop is built like the proverbial Outhouse and will be in service for years to come. It all goes together faster than Lego Bricks and just as easy. Did the whole thing from start to finish in an hour, thereabouts, with various tea breaks to admire my fine work!
Once we had the coop set up the chickens arrived. The box the ladies turned up in was a work of art in itself. Complete with a little drinker and food for their journey. I have been less well looked after by Air New Zealand.
Fionna and Gordon will answer any and all of your questions. Give them a call."
My chooks love it and very easy to use
Great product and fast delivery
Appletons Easy Care Drinker
Hens happy and laying well.
Loving this product
This product really works. Only had to spray twice. Highly recommend
Quick turn a round. Very efficient. Thanks
Brilliant...chooks new exactly what to do. We have six birds. 2x fountains with 2 mini cups in each allowing enough fluids for a week. Super easy
Great service thank you
Bought water and food feeder.love them both.
This is our second Apex Hen House, as our wee flock was growing we decided to add some more room for the accomodation wing of the chook run. All our chooks keep so well in these, there was no other choice
Chooks loved them - order was delivered promptly
Nest-o-Matic Laying Box Liner
Westons Peak Layer Pellets
Very happy with our new coop. Would recommend these products to others
Very prompt delivery and easy assembled thanks
We had a pecking issue and now we don’t … but you do need to keep reapplying every 3 to 5 days
Great product, providing the girls with some extra zing while they are abit nude feather wise.
Very pleased with this product
Great product, Well made. Easy to put on with the Velcro straps. I think the other chooks are a bit jealous. Great prompt service as usual from Appleton’s
Appletons Poultry Shell Grit
Excellent communication and quick service thank you.
A brilliant product. The chickens are much healthier now!
We have owned a Mainline drinker, almost identical in design, for seven years. It developed an invisible hole somewhere that caused the water to overflow, eventually rendering it no better than a simple dish. But as it lasted outside for so long, I can't really complain.
Seeking to replace the leaky unit, I found this Appleton product, which looks sturdier. I decided to try it, as the price is comparable to the competing product. Here's hoping it lasts at least as long as its predecessor.
Super fast delivery and great product...thanks
Prompt communication and delivery
My ladies love their new coop, it’s well made, nice to look at and super cosy. Thanks
Product arrived very promptly. Excellent user friendly container
These are really good to keep the rabbie out of the wind. Another worthwhile product.
We have had chickens a few years ago and this is our second one - We are getting chicken soon again - recommend easy care and water stays nice and fresh
I have been battling with scaly leg on my Hyline hens and finally have gotten on top of it thanks to this treatment. Thank u
Thanks Fiona and team! Good procuct. Great service
The only thing that deals to red mites! The bottle with the built in measuring cup is so easy to use. Recommend
We set the ‘Duo’ up this morning - it took a couple of hours to put together and longer to get the site level. It fitted together perfectly and the instructions were helpful and simple. Thank you. It looks fantastic and ready for the chooks to arrive this coming week.
Excellent easy to use product clear instructions and it worked
