We cannot talk enough about how wonderful backyard chickens are for your yard and for your family.
Pet chickens are incredibly interactive and will seek out your company if outside.
Hybrid egg laying chickens will promise an egg a day however may create a bit of mess as they forage around your garden beds. For those wanting a heritage chicken or a more dainty chicken without the powerful drumsticks of the bigger girls, then a bantam chicken is the answer. Smaller, more compact, will make less mess but still provide eggs. See our bantam range on our City Chicks website for details www.citychicks.com.au
