If you are looking for easy-care accommodation for 4 chooks or as many as 4 dozen then talk to us. We can help you choose the right hen house to best suit how you wish to manage your chickens. Are you living on a lifestyle block and wish to enjoy the pleasures of watching your chickens foraging in the paddocks? Or do you work away from home during the day and need to keep your chickens safe and secure in an enclosed run? Do you need to keep you chooks off the front garden, out of the vegetable garden and away from the deck? Have you given any thought to how you plan to merge new layers in with older layers when the time arises, if so, then perhaps consider one of our more flexible DUO models. Making the right decision will make all the difference to making it a pleasure. Please note our Timber Range are built to order here at Appletons and depending on workshop capacity can take app. 7 to 15 working days to build from order confirmation to dispatch. Our Omlet Eglu Range are ready to go.
We ship nationwide either direct to your door or to your closest Mainfreight Depot. Shipping is an additional cost and will be confirmed on receipt of your order and the shipping cost added to your order total on your agreement. Thank you.
Excellent service, from pictures, to ordering, to paying, to delivery, all fantastic, and the chooks were drinking out of the Appletons Easy Care Drinker within a few days of ordering it.Thanks Heaps Christine and 13 happy chooks :)

Very happy all round
We have been dealing with Appletons for nearly two years and they have great products, lovely chookies and clearly care very much for the welfare of all their birds. What has truly impressed us is the amazing guidance, support and above and beyond generous after sale service Fionna has consistently given us. She (and Gordon on the odd time Fionna wasn't around) has been exceptional and so patient and caring. Honestly they are absolutely wonderful. We highly recommend Appletons to any prospective poultry owner. Anna and Sylvain Filliol

Easy Care Drinker
Just as it says! Easy!! Completely moulded so that the water goes in and comes out in the same place so no leak risks. Best water dispenser we have tried and we have tried at least 4 different ones!

We were delighted to pick up our brown shavers from the Mainfreight Depot. Your improved website and great systems made it really easy to get chickens to Dunedin, stress free. Chickens are happy, healthy and settling well.
