New Chickens

Yesterday we got some new Isa Brown chickens for our backyard. Over the years we have had a couple of varieties the Isa Browns have been the best - friendly, good layers and hardy. We got them from a lovely couple at Campania. Delia raises the chickens with great care and sells them predominately to backyard chicken enthusiasts.

We got 3 and they are very cute (though a little shy at this stage). Thanks to some advice from Delia the introduction was very peaceful (only 1 peck so far).

Chickens are a great addition to your backyard. They provide eggs, manure and are good can be good compost makers and weed removers. They also make pretty good pets if you spend time with them.

If you would like to buy some chickens please call Delia on 6260 4222.
