Merry Christmas Everyone!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas day and you are all looking forward to the New Year ahead.  I've been researching new technologies for the past year, and I am happy to say that not only am I back on my feet (health-wise) after a few setbacks, I am well on the way to completing the long-awaited and overdue website upgrade, including some great features to identify spam sellers and eliminate spam ads.

Thank-you so much for your continued loyal support, for Australia's first and original dedicated Classified Ads website for Chickens and Poultry!

Can You Stop a Rooster Crowing? PDF Print E-mail
Written by ChookNet Admin

A good question from our facebook page!  Some people build a box and keep the rooster overnight in the laundry or other safe place.  If the box is low enough to stop them putting their head up high it will stop them crowing.  Some roosters can be clever though and work out a way to crow regardless of what you do.  Good luck!

Scammer Alert PDF Print E-mail

So sad to hear that one of our members has been scammed recently by a person selling fertile eggs.  Unfortunatley online classified ads websites are an easy target for scammers, please learn and remember how to recognise a scam ad, fertile eggs or anything sold by mail order, is an especially easy target.

* IMPORTANT * Before buying anything by mail order please check to see if the seller is listed in our Breeder's Directory ... if they are not in the Breeder's Directory then DON'T BUY from them!

If the seller is listed in the Breeder's directory you can use their information to work out if they are genuine ... eg. you will know soon enough by asking questions, and if the seller lives outside Australia for example ... use your intuition and if you feel something is not right, then don't buy!

Please read the information on our Buyer Beware page on how to recognise a scam.

The scam ads have been removed but if you see any more appearing please report them to admin at chooknet dot com dot au or send us a message on facebook.

Thank-you for helping us to keep Chooknet Scam-free

Happy New Year 2014! PDF Print E-mail

Happy New Year everyone!  Best wishes for a prosperous and wonderful year ahead!


Please, please do not send any money overseas ... the seller is a scammer!

Also if you are buying fertile eggs, or anything where goods are delivered by post and you must pay for goods in advance ... please, please verify the seller's reputation.

You can do this easily by asking on the Chooknet Facebook page, or the Backyard Poultry forum at ...

Just post a new message and ask if anyone else has bought from the seller, give the sellers email address and any other contact information, ask what experience they had with the seller.  You will be amazed at how easy it is to verify a seller's credentials that way.  It's well worth the effort.

All the best for a great 2014!
