CHOOKS!!! 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!
