Families flock to backyard hens


Many Melbourne families are discovering just how much joy a small flock of backyard hens can bring to their homes. With no permit needed to keep them on the Peninsula, it’s now easier than ever!

After five years running Talking Hens in Keysborough, Jason, Giuliana and daughter Bella (pictured) have moved the business to Main Ridge. Passionate about their hens and their customers, Jason and Giuliana continually look for ways to overcome any problems and provide better products and services.

From their farm they sell quality Hy-Line Brown hens, highest grade chicken feed and a range of related products. Hy-Line hens are not only one of the very best laying breeds in the world, they’re also one of the friendliest. Customers rave about how quickly they have become much-loved pets and how their children adore them. Of course, having eggs as a daily source of high-quality protein, minerals and vitamins is also something their hens are expert at producing.

While the Hy-Line hen is able to lay an egg a day, this can only be achieved with a tailored, high-quality feed. Fortunately, Giuliana’s father, Agostino, created an amazing laying hen diet with the help of Dr Hector Karunajeewa, who was a leading poultry diet researcher with the Animal Research Institute in Werribee at the time.  

Using the family’s “secret” recipe, Talking Hens now sends its chook feed Australia-wide. It also works closely with Peninsula vet Dr Grant Richards in the development of a range of natural hen care products that it sells. Selling only the highest quality products, Talking Hens happily provides a 100 per cent money-back guarantee - which is even extended to its hens!
