Does anyone have any hens for sale please??!

Any hens for Sale in Auckland and/or Northland?

I keep going hardout on TM, but missing out on them. Not sure where else to look for them. I still have some chicks lined up, but that's not going to help me immediately and isn't definate as knowing my luck I'll miss them too! haha

I have one hen by herself , and I really need a friend or two for her.

Does anyone have any or know of someone with some??? Please

Many thanks!!!
Sundays

Re: Does anyone have any hens for sale please??!

Wish I could send some of mine up your way, I'm still trying to de-populate my flock!

TM is getting mad with the chook auctions. I even had people get in touch from Dunedin and Blenheim, looking for bitsa bantams; apparently they're as rare as hens' teeth in those areas?!

Good luck with your search.

Sundays best but what did you want as a companion.. if more commercial say like the hylines then I think the Lichfield poultry must be having another clear out soon..they certainly are docile and very pettable, not like the monster Shavers who killed anything they could

Re: Does anyone have any hens for sale please??!

Sundays, good luck finding some. Almost all those on TM from what I can see are for fertile eggs, or shavers...and they are around the $20 each mark also - rather than POL pullets or hens. Feeling quite relieved I got the two that I bought a week or so ago, though I don't get to pick them up til the weekend!

is this someone with blue eyes at Fiskens? I must look more closely next time, but in the meanwhile if so, can we all benefit from a staff discount programme if we encourage you to take it further?

I agree swaggie, I could sure use a discount. I don't fancy him at all so devan can have him, mind you he is young enough to be my son and has never looked at me sideways anyway
