NOTE – FOR BEST PRACTICE:
Use pine shavings in nesting boxes and on hutch floor.
Use straw on the ground of their run.
Chickens require lots of shade in the warmer months.
Keep nesting boxes dark and low to the ground and perches up hi and secure.
Please be mindful that once chickens have passed approximately 18-24 months of age, laying will become irregular, shell quality will start to deteriorate and due to a natural moulting process, they will go off the lay for several months particularly in the cooler months but will then continue to lay once they have regrown all their feathers.
All our chickens have been vaccinated for the following:
Mareks IB (2 strains)
ILT (2 strains)
Fowl Pox, NVD, AE, EDS
Benzicare x2 (Wormer)
