When the hatchery advises of delivery a notice will be posted to Facebook. We then operate a ticket system on the day on a first come first serve basis. This will ensure that once they are released for sale we will have enough hens for the ticket holders. Tickets will be available from around 9am and we usually expect chooks ready for sale around 2pm. It is not necessary to stay at the shop, but you must be ready to receive your chooks at the designated sale time or risk losing them. A limit of 4 chooks per customer will be enforced.

Customers will be invited to collect their chooks one at a time to comply with social distancing requirements.

If you also require chook food, bedding or coop equipment please could you buy this separately, preferably before the collection time. From previous experience this created a lot of delays during chook collection due to the high number of customers.

NOTE: Chook food is not in short supply and the only reason for any empty shelves is panic buying and re-stocking times which can be long if from interstate.


We specialise in ‘point of lay’ chooks and also offer day old chicks for sale. If you are new to keeping chooks we’ll help you get started! We supply a wide range of feeds to cover all stages of your flock’s devlopment. We also supply feeders, waterers and care products.
We primarily stock commercial layers (Lohmann Browns), Australorp and Leghorn hybrids but we often have few different breeds for variety. Birds are sexed, wormed and inoculated unless advised otherwise.

Return Policy – Although the sexing of point-of-lay chickens is very clear we may still see the odd rooster slipping through, especially in the bantam breeds. For day old chicks, the use of vent sexing can only be accurate in the range of 85-95% so the probability of raising a rooster from young birds is increased. In both cases we will take back the rooster and refund the full cost price.

Pre-Purchase Policy – Due to the large number of chickens being held for customers and not collected as well as pre-purchased being left uncollected for long periods of time we regret that we will no longer hold chickens for customers beyond one day and will not accept payment prior to collection.

Guidelines – Caring for Day Old Chicks (Brooding) – By purchasing a baby chick you are taking on the responsibity for a yound animal’s welfare. Please read our guidelines for caring for chicks below:

Sick Chickens Policy – We strive to ensure that all our chickens are in perfect health when they leave the shop and all our commercial layers are vaccinated for the main diseases. Unlike humans, when Chickens do get sick they tend to go downhill very quickly so do seek advice as soon as possible. For this same reason, we cannot accept responsibility for sick chickens unless they are reported to us within 48 hours of leaving the shop.

Should you require vetenary assistance, it is worth remembering that not all small animal vets have avian experience. In our area we recommend contacting the Brisbane Bird Vet clinic in Chermside:

Chicks for Sale

We are now incubating and hatching eggs in the shop!

We’ll be selling Lohmann Browns chicks for $7.50. The little chicks are coloured sexed at birth with a 90% accuracy, but will not be vaccinated. We have a return policy should you pick up a female chick and it becomes a rooster.

You can still order in breed and gender specific, vaccinated chicks from us. Chicks from the commercial range are generally $10.00, while heritage breeds vary depending on our supply price.
