Brown Shaver Pullets (Laying Hens)

These pullets are ready to go to new homes. We recommend purchasing from 8 to 16 weeks of age so the girls can settle into their new home and your routine prior to point of lay. We usually have two ages available.
From: $16.00

Our brown shaver girls are happy and healthy and raised with care.

They are shed raised and once-off heat let outside to start enjoying the green grass, fresh air and free-range. We feed them on a premium quality chick feed (Westons Chicks Choice) from day one up to POL. They have feed available to them at all times so are well fed on a quality feed for optimum growth. We find the Westons feed to be the best feed as it contains both naturally occurring ruminant proteins and vegetable-based proteins. Feed quality feed to get the best out of your birds. Here at Appletons we stock and sell the Westons stockfeed range. If purchasing pullets from us they will need to go with a bag of the same feed that they have been on and are accustomed too. We have both 10kg and 25kg bags available. This means one less stress when they move to their new home and house. Please remember to add a bag to your cart when placing your order.

Talk to us and we are happy to advise with tips and advice on getting your new girls settled in. All our brown shavers are vaccinated for Marek's and salmonella. We sell a minimum of 3 pullets. They are flock birds and live in family groups so keeping one or two is not really ideal...especially if you lose one and the last one is then left on its own. 

Please note the price of our Brown Shavers goes up to $1.20 each week on a Thursday. So for every week, they get older we add on $1.20 to cover feed and maintenance overheads. Our Brown Shaver pullets are ready to go to new homes immediately. We do not grow them all on to POL for collection.

Pick up of pullets is available only from the Brightwater Store in Mt Heslington Road. We do not deliver locally or drop livestock off at the pick-up point in Stoke. 

Please note at the moment we cannot ship birds. Mainfreight due to new regulations cannot carry livestock and Cool Critter Cartage is no longer in operation so until we can find a new, reliable pet carrier we cannot send birds to our usual destinations.
