Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. Out of the chicken breeds you sell (Isa Brown, Leghorns & Australorps) which breed do you recommend as a backyard layer and pet?
A. All three chicken breeds that we sell including the White Leghorns, Black Australorps & Isa-Browns have been selected because they are good egg layers, but if you want the best egg layers its best to go with the Isa Browns. With regards to other considerations, like suitability as a pet, the 3 breeds are very similar and you are more likely to find more significant differences between individual birds then between the breeds of these chickens.
Q. Are your Australorp hens de-beaked, ie had there beaks trimmed?
A. No, since many of customers prefer their chickens with un-trimmed beaks we only stock chickens with full beaks. Some poultry suppliers do this to prevent their poultry from pecking each other. The birds beaks do grow back ofcoarse, but it can make it difficult for trimmed birds to forage and eat larger grains until their beaks grow back. Note - This is not a guarantee that our poultry will always have un-trimmed beaks, but we always do our very best to source such poultry.
Q. I recently bought a White Leghorn and Black Australorp but they dont seem to meet the club standards that ive read online?
A. The club standards you are referring to relate to breeding poultry breeds for show competition. The birds we sell are egg laying stock and are not showbirds. Unless you are looking to compete in show competition these club standards are not relevant to you. Please note that these standards are only cosmetic and do not relate to the health of the bird.
