A family business that’s really hatched

From humble beginnings, the Hazeldenes have created one of the largest chicken farming operations in Australia. Now, the third generation is wanting more control.

The Hazeldene family from Bendigo have been breeding, hatching and processing chickens for the best part of 75 years.

The family business started during the Second World War, when 10-year-old Dick Hazeldene was asked to look after his brother Jack’s 200 fowls as he went off to pilot a Wellington Bomber.
