These little ladies have big personality, striking plumage and are prolific layers.
Classification: Light Breed
We keep the lovely golden campines. This is an ancient European breed that was developed in Belgium and takes its name from that region of the country. The interesting fact about this breed is that the males and females look very similar in plumage colour markings. The roosters are hen-feathered as they do not have pronounced sickle feathers or pointed neck or saddle hackle feathers. The roosters are showy fellas and love to strut their stuff and impress the girls. The campine has great character: sometimes aloof, sometimes friendly. Once this bird is comfortable with who you are they will happily approach you. They are alert, active birds and love to forage and free range. If penned make sure the pen is secure and netted over as they will be over and out and exploring in no time . The campine was developed primarily as an egg layer and we find ours reward us regularly with lots of lovely white eggs.
We bought the starter pack for housing the chicks we have incubated at school as part of our Primary Industries programme and it is so awesome - the cage is a great size with nice high sides to catch all the 'bits' the chicks flick around. We chose the ceramic lamp instead of the heating pad as it gives greater versatility and our new wee chicks just love it. And it was a GREAT price, very prompt delivery :)

Great product. Fast delivery. My hens are loving the extra freedom and I'm loving that they can't come down to the house.

This was the perfect match for our Eco egg incubator as somewhere along the line our power supply went walk about. Really awesome quick service

Awesome pig house. It took us 15 minutes to assemble. The piggies will be very happy in their warm and sturdy enclosure. Great service too.

Delivery of order was very prompt - thanks.
The chickens were a little frightened when the treadle moved but have learned very quickly. After two days, they don't bat an eye.
Their food is now secure from sparrows, etc. feed-o-magic is a good choice.

Just wanted you to know that the Hen house is perfect. I knew it would be, but I know how nice it is to get feedback - so thank you for designing and constructing such a cool little home for the girls. Form and function!
It looks great. Thanks for making the purchase hassle free.
