Rhode island Reds

Good morning...
We have decided we would like a few more Rhode Island Reds. The kids just love our current one and she is the friendliest of all our heritage girls. Who is the closest breeder these days in Auckland. Anyone closer than Warkworth?
Thanks

No idea on anyone other than the lady in Warkworth, but aside from the distance, don't be disappointed if you can't find anyone else. I've had 9 RIRs from her and they've all been great birds. Robust, friendly, excellent layers, good foragers. I live in WW.. make a day of the drive, have lunch and enjoy the change of scenery :D

All true. Just despite us having several heritage birds from her she will only sell a minimum of three at a time...
