I have 2... maybe 3 (I have 5 all up but want to keep at least 2 as they are such good layers) They are 16 weeks and 1 has already started laying. They have been raised free range on 5 acres. All were purchased from a comercial breeder round the corner from me... they have not been de-beaked or raised on any artificial drugs or hormones. Just layer/grower pellets, vege scraps, leftovers and whatever else they find...weeds, worms, grubs and so on. They were vaccinated at hatching. As far as I can tell they are healthy parasite free and active. I have not used a wormer but I add garlic and they are not overcrowded or in damp conditions. They are $12 each or I will swap them for either: 2 tame ewes or for any of the following poultry breeds Araucanas (rooster and hens or just hens) silkies (rooster and hen or just hens ) any very very broody motherly hens who will deffinately brood and hatch eggs I stick under her Orpingtons naked necks geese very tame and friendly goat any other rae or interesting breed of chook. I may also have a number of chics avaliable for sale by summer if all goes well. They will be mixed breeds (lavender)Araucana x road Island Red Bantam Araucana x Australorp (with a dash of new hampshire) ISA brown x RIR bantam ISA brown x Australorp/hampshire Australorp x new hampshire If I get silkies or an araucana rooster soon there will also be pure and mixed breed silkies and araucanas. I do things naturally here so cannot garauntee chics till they hatch. I will be sure to post. Chics will also be for sale or swap. Southern Highlands NSW.
