Poultry

 
 
 
If you have a larger outdoor space at your home in Cairns or Atherton, you could consider keeping some poultry in the backyard. Chickens and turkeys make interesting and low maintenance pets with the added bonus of producing fresh eggs.

Other poultry options to choose from include ducks, turkeys and guinea fowl. These pets love to roam around, especially if you have plenty of greenery for them to peck around in and a water feature is an added attraction. Peacocks do require a little bit of care, as they can be dangerous in some circumstances, but taking the relevant precautions will allow you to keep a pet peacock with ease.

Owning poultry

 
One of the key advantages of owning poultry is having fresh, free range eggs. Chickens produce very little waste and eat your vegetable scraps, plus you get the benefit of the fresh eggs if you have a few chickens in your backyard.

Many people find that owning chickens and other poultry can be a satisfying experience since you are producing food for yourself.

As with any pet, owning poultry is a responsibility. You will need to maintain a proper cage and outdoor area for your chickens and hens to roam around. You will also have to ensure they are adequately fed, their waste is disposed of efficiently and you are allowing them time to roam around outside of their cages.
 
 
 
 
 
If you have never owned chickens, hens or other poultry, the team at Pets to Pamper are happy to advise you on the steps you will need to take to create a hospitable environment for them.

We look forward to seeing you at our pet stores in Atherton and Cairns to buy poultry and all the necessary accessories and pet food you will need.
