Our little hyline is a wonderful little girl, bought at a week old so our day old Hamburg rescue would have a friend, she isnt as pretty as the other chickens we have, but being hand raised with the day old, her personality outweighs her lack of 'pretty' and she follows right on your heels if you walk around the garden, the others tend to be about 5 steps behind, but very wary and run off if you get too close.

Definitely recommend Hylines for their placid easy going nature.

I bought 3 what I thought were Brown Shavers for $4 from a battery farm in Kawerau last august. One died suspiciously the next day (dog looked very guilty) but she was the one with a very pale and floppy comb and a clipped beak, so no biggie. The other two have laid an egg each every day since, apart from their moult at the beginning of winter for about 3 or 4 weeks and have started again a couple of weeks ago. They are great little birdies, and hunker down when I come near and are quite friendly to me and free range wonderfully. Only took them a week or so to learn to perch and run and and probably less to recognize the red bucket is food. Now you wouldnt even know they were batteries. They dont dig holes so I am assuming they are Hylines, as i looked in the guy up the roads coop yesterday and there was a giant deep hole in the middle of it which he said the chooks did!! funny!! They are my workers, and my purebreeds are really eye candy and meat

There is a person in Helensville who sells them at about 18 weeks old. They are on trade me trading under ruby_vixen with 100% positive feedback.

There is an ad up in the shop at Waimauku for brown shavers in this area. If I remember i will look for the number for you, it would be nice and local to you

I always have lots of Genuine Shavers available, they are great birds, they lay good size eggs and are very hardy and friendly. :)
