At Evans Chickens we are ‘egg-cited’ about all things poultry!
We are a family business that love to share our knowledge & passion with you we can help you with all your backyard poultry needs.
We are seeing an lot of interest and calls from families wanting to keep chickens. Most have fond memories of when they were kids and their parents or grandparents had chickens in the back yard.
Everyday we are talking to people looking to keep chickens and asking questions on how to go about it. Some just can’t quite remember the process and need a little refreshing; many are starting out and needing a little reassurance and advice. All want to produce their own fresh tasting food and recycle their scraps and create a little peck of kindness for their children along the way.
Eggs from backyard chickens are different from those bought at the store (even the free range ones). The fresh yolks are tastier and deeper in colour, thanks to the hens ’ access to greens, not to mention bugs and other goodies they snatch up in their foraging. They keep pest populations down. Turning the chickens loose in the veggie patch is an organic way to clean it up and prevent pests from surviving over winter.
Caring about chooks, their health and happiness, is very important to us at our Evans Chickens farm located at Maraylya, NSW.
