January Tip #1

Now in mid to late summer is the best time to get spring hatched heritage breed pullets. Breeders are sorting through their stock, deciding what to keep for breeding and showing – and what to move on as backyard layers. Spring hatched pullets of good laying strains will start to lay in late autumn or early winter supplying you with eggs when older birds moult and don’t lay.

Adding spring hatched pullets to your flock every year, preferably in late summer, is the best way to guarantee a year-round supply of homegrown eggs.

A Happy and Successful New Year to all our members, exhibitors and friends from the committee of the Christchurch Poultry, Bantam and Pigeon Club!

2017 will be a BIG year for us and we hope that our 150th Anniversary Show which we will celebrate by hosting the New Zealand National Show will be an event to be remembered.
