FEATH­ERED FRIENDS

Homes+ (Australia) - - READERS’ HOMES -

The fam­ily has sev­eral breeds of chick­ens, in­clud­ing Rhode Is­land Red, Aus­tralorp, Sil­ver Grey Dork­ing, Barn­evelder and the cheeky Isa Brown. But if you want to keep it sim­ple, Isa Browns are good chick­ens to start with. They are su­per-pro­duc­tive lay­ers (popping out up to 340 eggs per year), and are friendly and af­fec­tion­ate. They’ll adapt to all cli­mates and start lay­ing early in life, too. If you live in the sub­urbs, check your coun­cil re­quire­ments be­fore you get your girls, as there may be re­stric­tions on how many you can keep.
