We offer a poultry sourcing service Australia wide. How does it work?

  1. You add the breed & number of chickens to your cart along with your other items. 
  2. If your cart value reaches $100, the chicken sourcing service is complementary and our team will contact our Australia wide network of quality breeders to source your chickens. 
  3. Once we find them, you pickup & pay the local breeder for the chickens.

Subject to availability, your location and the rarity of the breed/colour you want. Don't worry though, we're very good at finding poultry Australia wide. In fact we love doing it.

The Polish chicken breed is quiet and calm, but can become timid if not handled regularly. These birds are best suited to those who have a bit of experience with chicken keeping, as their crests may need maintenance if too prominent. While they don’t tend to go broody, they are not prolific layers, gifting you about 200 eggs per year. But what they lack in egg laying power they make up for in good looks and charm.   


Is this service free?
If the value of the items in your cart is over $100, the sourcing service is complementary. We offer feed, bedding, health products and more: https://www.backyardchickencoops.com.au/collections/chicken-health-supplements. Note, the cost of the chickens is not included in the $100 limit.

How long does it take?
From 24 hours to a few weeks, depending on the rarity of the breed, your location and the time of year. We keep you updated during the process (Order Received > Sourcing > Found > Complete)

Can I have them delivered?
It is likely your breeder can coordinate this for you. Once we put you in contact with them you can simply ask.  

I want a breed you don’t have listed?
Unfortunately, our network of breeders specialise in the chickens we have listed and some are extremely rare and can take months to locate. If you have a very special breed that you must have, contact us for more information - we love a good challenge every so often. 

What breed is best for kids?
All chickens when handled and cared for are friendly, but there are some breeds that tend to be just a little more ideal for kids. Our top recommendations are, Plymouth Rock, Isa Brown, Australorps, Wyandotte and if you are ok with smaller less frequent eggs, then bantams are our top pick as they are the perfect mix of easy to keep, cute and fabulous personalities.. We love Bantma Silkies, Pekins, and Cochins.

How does it work?
Spend over $100 with us an have access to free chicken sourcing. We will use our networks, across Australia  

What breed should I get for the best eggs?
All hens lay eggs, but the best and most consistent layers are Isa Browns, Rhode Island Red and Sussex. 

Can I buy fertilized eggs?
Only in certain times of the year, so currently we cannot offer this.
