I am hoping to get some information regarding back yard chickens in Canberra.
According to Dr Harry Cooper, Isa Browns are the best in terms of breeds for families just wanting pets to lay eggs. Does anyone have any opinions on this? We’re not interested in any fancy breeds. Just good, friendly chickens that produce ‘normal’ sized eggs on a fairly regular basis
At what age do they start to lay? We want birds that are ready (or almost ready) to lay.
Recommended breeders/sellers – where can we buy them, and what should we expect to pay?
At this stage, we’re looking to purchase 2 hens. Any other advice would be greatly appreciated.
