and our flock
Providing the Highest Quality Products for your Chickens
Our first waterer (and product) was designed by my husband out of necessity for our chooks, sourcing the buckets from a local Queensland manufacturer – who is still our supplier.
Our mission is to provide quality service and quality Australian products. We now supply a full range of equipment, quality feeds and treats for your poultry, in keeping with our ethos of using Australian, sustainable products wherever possible.
The Good Life Backyard is made possible with the help of all our family and our four children – right down to my five-year-old son. We often think of ourselves as the ‘crazy chook’ family, it is a nickname we are proud of and one that has stuck!
At The Good Life Backyard we take real climate action and our environmental responsibility seriously.
1. Everyone is welcome. We’re an inclusive crowd, proud of the sense of belonging we infuse. Diversity brings us together to learn and grow. Every individual is respected, supported and appreciated for their unique contribution, diverse talents and for being themselves.
2. Diversity and inclusion are vital to the success of The Good Life Backyard. I work with people from all backgrounds, beliefs and experiences. I believe everyone should have the freedom to be themselves and be valued for their differences. It’s what makes our world go around.
3. We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first inhabitants of the nation and the traditional custodians of the lands where we live, learn, and work. We recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture.

Daisy the Hen
Daisy is mumma chook. Her flock follow her around learning from everything she does.
Daisy loves eating chickory and herbs from the garden. Her favourite product is our ‘Herb Blend’ mixed through her food daily.
Rascal the cockerel
Rascal is the oldest child. He is headstrong and bossy. He loves learning all that rusty does, especially dust bathing with the younger chickens. Rascals favourite is our DE, it keeps him mite and lice free. Can you find him on this page?!
Chickadee the chick
Chickadee is the new chick in the flock. Loved by all, and cute as a button. She spends her days munching on chick starter and our chickblend.
Eddie is the crazy older brother of Rusty. What a sense of humour he has! He is always keeping the flock entertained. He especially loves playing with the ‘vege basket toy’. It’s like a chicken piñata!
