Our brown shaver girls are happy and healthy and raised with care.
They are shed raised and once-off heat let outside to start enjoying the green grass, fresh air and free-range. We feed them on a premium quality chick feed (Westons Chicks Choice) from day one up to POL. They have quality feed available all times for optimum growth. We find the Westons feed to be the best feed as it contains both naturally occurring ruminant proteins and vegetable-based proteins. Feed quality feed to get the best out of your birds. Here at Appletons we stock and sell the Westons stockfeed range. If 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 house. Please remember to add a bag to your cart when placing your order.
Talk to us and we are happy to advise with tips and advice on getting your new girls settled in. 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. We sell a minimum of 3 pullets. 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.
Please note the price of our Brown Shavers goes up to $1.20 each week on a Thursday. So for every week, they get older we add on $1.20 to cover feed. Our Brown Shaver pullets are usually ready to go to new homes immediately. We do not grow them all on to POL for collection.
ALL LIVESTOCK IS PICK UP ONLY FROM OUR STORE.
Pick up of pullets is available only from the Brightwater Store in Mt Heslington Road.

Hi I haven’t yet received an email to come collect the hens. But you have been excellent with my other order. I’m very happy with buying of you
I got 8 chooks who still had a couple of months before POL. They are healthy friendly and a real joy. Fiona was extremely helpful and informative.
Such happy healthy little girls we love them very much, can't wait for the first eggs
Great thank you Fiona. They all are healthy and well and integrating. Keith
Best service one could ask for. Hens have not stopped laying since day one
