Good evening guys, I am new to lifestyle block, thinking to raise some animals to start for fun. Can some body help with my quiries? I have looked up online but cannot find any information for the baby animals. Thanks guys!

What did you type in your search box? I typed in "chickens for sale" and "quail chicks for sale" and came up with many possibilities, including Trademe.

Do NOT cross this paddock! ... Unless you can do it in 9 seconds, 'cos the bull can do it in 10!

For day old pullet chicks you can contact the hatcheries direct-cost likely to be $5 to $6 each, but you will need specialist chick starter feed for 6 weeks plus a heat source to start them -at least 35C to start with.
Do you know anything about rearing chicks and quail-they need quite a lot of care to start with-have you thought about getting older birds?
