Come Meet The 4m x 4m Big Chook
The magnificent Big Chook, mascot of The Big Chook Egg Farm.


Eggs are considered a 'staple' food - they're cheap, readily available, and can be cooked in a multitude of different ways. I personally like them fried, without the yolk (but only because of my allergies)! You can't really go wrong with eggs as they are both easy to cook and always taste good - however, fresh eggs are no doubt much better than your regular old eggs from your local Coles/Woolworths/Aldi's!

Loving the retro feel this place has, as well as the cute chicken silhouette on the roof!


The Big Chook Egg Farm is approximately an hour's drive west from Sydney CBD, and boy is it is worth the42 kilometers. The drive out itself is beautiful, which just makes your visit all the more worthwhile.

Beautiful drive out.


As you may have guessed from the name, The Big Chook Egg Farm sells... (freshly laid) eggs! In addition to eggs, they also sell chicken mince pet food, fresh duck, fresh chicken and fresh quail, as well as frozen foods too. They even sell live hens for only $3.00!

Some of the products available for purchase.

Fresh farm eggs.


The shop itself may be small (although the farm (and the mascot) isn't), but the owners have manages to utilise it's space well and have packed a lot of great products into it. There is also a wide variety of manure available for purchase outside the store.

Outside the shop.


Despite being located in a quiet suburb a little whiles away from the CBD, don't worry about not being able to find the place - with such a great mascot (literally), it's very hard to drive past and miss it! Here are another couple of shots of the Big Chook - I just couldn't get enough of it.

The only thing that would make the Big Chook better is if I could go inside and see it up close in all it's glory...

Expressing my love for the Big Chook.


For those of you with kids (or for those of you, like me, who are still kids at heart), there are lots of animals at The Big Chook Egg Farm, including a cockatoo who, if you greet, will happily say hello to you in reciprocation! I spent lots of time trying to get him/her to say something other than 'hello', but unfortunately had no luck.

Duck, duck, goose!

Serenity.


The Big Chook Egg Farm is not your average farm that sells fresh farm eggs - it is definitely a worthwhile place to visit, especially for those of you who love seeing Big Things like me! Although I did not purchase any eggs because I was not staying in a place that had a kitchenette, from the number of customers I saw early on a Friday morning, many of whom appear to be regular customers, it seems as though The Big Chook Egg Farm sells very fresh and yummy eggs indeed.

Goodbye Big Chook, hope to see you again someday!

This article would have been good if you showed an address at the beginning not just a small map that doesn't give enough information of the area. The egg farm is on Mamre road Kemps Creek.
