Chicken Breeds In Adelaide
These are the chickens we see at Walkerville Vet, your local chicken friendly vet. All these birds are hens except the Australorp at the end. Sorry, this is a guide to breeds, not a page on where to buy chickens (though Keelan’s is a good place to start).
A little less common than the others, but a pretty bird and a slightly smaller size.
Actually we haven’t seen one of this rare breed yet, but the lovely folks at Keelan Grain & Fodder sometimes have them, along with Australorp and ISA Brown hens. They’ll also be about to offer good chicken foods that go along with our chicken diet advice.
This breed is quite prone to egg peritonitis (sometimes erroneously called egg binding)
