    Hi all, just signed up to this forum, looking at getting a few chickens soon so thought I should ask some questions and do as much research as I can beforehand.

    Also interested if there are any other NZ members on here?

    [​IMG] There are two Aussie threads. Go to "where am I, where are you," in the social forum to see if there are any New Zealand threads. I know we have members from there, I greet a few every week.


    The Learning Center is a great place to start you chicken education

    I would recommend some Rhode island hens for you, hardy chooks and can also be eaten.
    Lay big size 7 to 8 eggs, 250 to 320 a year.
    I would not get chickens until you have done lots of research on them, like on all the desieses and free range lots, also mites and cures.
    Research really helped me, I am an expert and only 16!
