Back yard chooks the easy way
If you have thought about having chickens in your back yard but have dismissed the idea as being too hard, think again.

Rentachook makes it easy by allowing you to try before you buy. You can start off with a couple of hens, a small coop and all the essentials (food, straw etc) and try it for 6 weeks.

There is no obligation to buy at the end of the trial period. If it's not for you, you can just return everything . For those who have never had chickens before it is a great way to get started as you also get all the information and advice you need.

We started off this way when our children were young, however we soon decided to keep the chickens. Since then we have built our own chook house and pen and have had many different varieties of chickens, all in our suburban back yard.

Believe me, it is very difficult to go back to supermarket-bought eggs after having fresh home grown eggs.

Rentachook is located at Denistone in Sydney or they can deliver to you. Find out more on the Rentachook website.
