Backyard Chooks in Canberra

By Kristielee - 13 April 2010 21

Hi all,

I am thinking of getting a few chooks for egg production and composting.

I live on a small block in Canberra and have called Canberra Connect and RSPCA but have not been able to find much information on raising egg laying chooks in small urban backyards.

Any advice, personal stories or links to physical or online resources for further information re sizing of coops, regulations, distances required from houses/fencelines, types of chickens most suitable for the extreme Canberra environment etc would be most appreciated.

Hi Kristielee. I’m guessing by now you would have had some help with setting up your chicks in your backyard. I have had two chickens since December. We got them as 6 day old chicks and it has been amazing watching them fro. They started laying early June and laid an egg each all through winter. We just love them. Their names: Fluffy and Cupcake. I posted a video of them every week until they started laying. Now they Re really big and beautiful.
If you would like to chat about them I would love to
