I bought some "Clucker Tucker" seeds from Green Harvest and planted it out under a grazing frame. After all of my hard work, they prefer to eat volunteer weeds instead of the "good for you" lovingly planted chook selection. I'm sure they do it on purpose to vex me.

I'm no weed expert, but that looks like milk thistle, or sow thistle, not dandelion. It is fine for chooks regardless.

That said, all of my real-life chookie friends have started out with Australorps and they couldn't be happier.


Hi Levrette, took your advice and done some research and quite happy with results, only one problem, rang 4 places in adelaide and it appears that one would have more luck with hen's teeth than buying australorps.
It appears they are quite scarce.
So looks like it's back to isa browns :-(
