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."
Replacement Float Assembly Only
Very easy to assembly to my existing hutch and to my new Appleton run.
I love this for my chickens as I know they will never be hungry. They just help themselves when they need it. It didn't take them long to learn to stand on step to open lid.
Great service.very happy customer thanks
Hubby & I managed to get our Catio (3x3x2) put together without a divorce (although there were a couple of touchy moments there). Wonderful product and already serving its purpose well. Love our Catio!
Hi this is an excellent product the water stays cool and clean and lots of it
Terrific service over the holiday period and the cats just love their new toys!!
Great little trough, just connect and ready to go. Happy little hens in this summer sun always having a good clean supply of water.
This Starter pack was just what we need. We have free range chickens that just roam across our 10 acres, and they have been terrible mothers in the past. When we find a chick away from its mum we have to try and hand rear them. It has been really handy to have this set up, and if and when we find chicks we are quickly able to get them warmed up and fed in an easy clean enclosure. Thanks Heaps
Always helpful. Highly recommended.
Good coop cleaner. Doesn't get rid of red mites but definitely reduces the amount of them.
Great book for NZ environment, bought as gift for daughter in law (from overseas) raising home chooks in NZ. Very helpful.
Turnaround time on the order and delivery was superb . Very happy to get before Xmas to fit the cups for my chooks
Love the product. Came super fast. Lots of comments from guests.
Perfect for my chicken house …. Looking and feeling fresh.
