Happy National Chook Health Day!

Putting the Chicken Before the Egg

Happy National Chook Health Day!

There's certainly a national day for everything, and with Spring just around the corner, its a good time to celebrate National Chook Health Day!

Those of us considering getting a few poultry pets, are reminded to ensure we comply with our local regulations. 

The Orange City Council allows residents to keep up to 10 chickens in the yard, but we are NOT allowed to roosters, due to "the very high likelihood of noise complaints."

There's many benefits of having chickens, like free range eggs, an environmentally friendly food waste management system, composting, and of course, they make great pets! 

We can view Councils website below, for a compreHENsive look at the rules for keeping chooks:
