Hi, thanks for the welcome. Not sure of breed yet, but possibly brown shavers, as I believe these are good to start with?

Hi and a very warm welcome from me, too.

Brown Shavers definitely are a good bird to start with - and the are easy to come by, too. There is Heslips Hatcheries who supply POL Shavers which is much better than buying cage rescues - and not any dearer, either. If you have a look here on the forum you'll find the srories of many heartbroken beginners who thought they were doing a good deed by rescuing a few of those worn-out hens who've laid their little butts off for someone else. Buying Point-of-lay pullets is the way to go - they'll lay all their eggs for you :D

Heslips deliver to most places in the South Island. Have a look at their website http://www.heslipshatcheries.co.nz/
