|Back to the questions . . .|
I would like to raise organic chickens commercially. I find they seem to
be very hard to buy. Where could I find some information or help on
setting up this kind of operation We have 5 acres and are not certified
as yet,but the farmer we bought the property off doesnt use sprays and
this shows with the abundent worm life on the property any help would be
- Contact: Joy McLeod - Joy and Peter McLeod have Bio-Gro certified poultry - they buy their chicks as ‘day olds’ - as long as they have had no treatment they will be fully certified. There is not much information available on the subject but Joy is happy to help people.

- · Book: ‘Backyard Poultry Naturally’ by Alanna Moore - Bolwarrah Press, Victoria, 1998 - gives information on feed, problems, breeding... well worth reading.
