PICK UP ONLY
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 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.

    We have had our 4 girls a few weeks now and they are loving life. They are an intelligent group as they have nearly sussed the auto feeder. In another couple of weeks the pegs will be able to go. Thank you for all your help.

    Healthy pullets

    Very happy with our 7 healthy well grown pullets. This is our second purchase of pullets from Appletons. They have previously proven to be good layers for some years. Well worth waiting for. Great advise too.

    Thanks Fiona and Gordon for four more of your wee shavers. Your chooks always do well here and these ones are eating like mad and growing fast. One keeps breaking out of the coop so we called her Houdini! Maybe a throwback to a very intelligent ancestor? Anyway we're very happy with these girls and would highly recommend you to everyone reading this.

    We were very happy with the great help we had collecting our 40 chickens. We had limited space in our vehicle, and we would have struggled to manage this on our own. The chickens are all looking healthy and growing well. Thank you for the advice and service.
