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[:I]

Many thanks!!!
Sundays [8D]

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.

Um, are you talking about Cheeky? My hen? She is a NHR and is point of lay. She is a pet with a purpose - eggs!

There is a place in Drury that sells POL shavers for $20, Maketu Chicken farm 027 6013618. You just ring and arrange pick up as far as I know, couple of people at work use her.

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

OK great thanks both of you - I will give them a whirl. PS my shavers I had (The Supremes) were awesome, so friendly and lovely... so not all shavers are meanies!

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?[:D][:D][:D][:D]

Re: Does anyone have any hens for sale please??!
 
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 [:D][:(][:D]

Now how funny would it be if a family member of his was an LSBer on here...? :rolleyes:[}:)]
