Bringing a little country to your back yard.....

Poultry are rewarding, useful and entertaining pets.

They’re great with the kids; you get fresh eggs and if you think an aquarium is relaxing, just wait until you’ve watched a hen scratch around for a while. The kids have a ball finding and feeding them all sorts of worms and bugs.  It’s the ultimate relaxation therapy!


BookAChook gives you the opportunity to try for yourself, without the commitment.


                              That's right, a ‘try before you buy!!’

BookAChook delivers all over Melbourne, VIC and we’ll supply the coop, the chooks, the food, and plenty of good advice  on how you can bring a little of the country into your own back yard.  Give it a go..fall in love, we have!

 Blue bantam Langshan                                                                                                 Buff bantam Pekin            


I currently have a waitlist for Pekins. Please email to add your name to the "chicklist"

They are prioritised to the people who have been waiting patiently since winter.


I am focussing on the bantam Pekins - my lovely fluffy, friendly girls, and the bantam Langshans - pretty, productive, curious backyard layers.

I don't have point of lay or adult hens for sale at the moment.
