Here at Wagner's Poultry we dispatch day old chickens and ducklings fortnightly throughout the year. Sexed day olds are available for sale every 2nd Wednesday morning (fortnightly) from 8am to 12 midday. Brown, black and white chicks will be there for you to choose, along with feed and water dispensers and feed. Information sheets are also issued regarding their care.

The most important fact in caring for day old chicks and ducks is HEAT! In fact, they should be kept inside under a heat lamp or brooder for about 5 - 6 weeks. By this time they are just about fully feathered. It is then safe to rear them outside in a contained area, with a dry sheltered area in which to sleep. Their main predators at this stage are cats, dogs, crows, and of course, foxes! Care should therefore be taken to make sure their pen is well secured at night.

Our birds are a commercial egg laying strain. They are bred for maximum egg production rather than meat. Once they reach maturity at about 22 weeks, they will start laying.
