Families who want a few hens to give them fresh eggs, first need to decide which hens to buy. Some heritage breeds look terrific but they may not be prolific layers – or they might have cranky temperaments which make them unsuitable around children. Choosing the right hens for your backyard can be a simple process once you have sorted out a suitable roaming area, coop and laying boxes.
ISA Brown hens have exceptional feed conversion and lay up to 300 eggs a year. The ISA Browns are docile, adapt well to different climates and are ideal as free range layers or for backyards where they make great pets as well as providing nutritious food for the family.
They are the hens we run at Freeranger Eggs and we often have some fully vaccinated hens available for backyarders. Give us a call to arrange pick-up.
