Free to a Good Home:
7 Laying hens, Colorado Springs. Free to good home.

Will Ship To: Nowhere -- local only

I posted this in  the re-homing forum, but I figure it won't hurt to put it here too.

 

I have 7 hens:

 

Two Production Red (brown eggs)

Two Rhode Island White (brown)

Three Ameracauna (blue).

 

These were hatched in March 2014.

 

I get 5-6 eggs per day in warm weather, and 3-4 in winter.

 

Colorado Springs, CO

 

These are great hens!

 

Long story, but it's a neighbor issue.  Once he moves, I'll get new hens.


I should add ... Chickens will come with an unopened 50lb bag of scratch grain, 30 lbs of mixed seed that I give as a daily treat, and whatever crumble feed I have left.

 

Please PM if interested.

I'll be posting this in all the places I listed the availability of my hens:

 

When you have to put down a family dog, and when the kids ask where Spot went, sometimes people soften the blow by saying Spot went to a very special farm where he can chase bunnies all day long...

 

I am pleased to say that my hens most certainly DID go to a very special farm.  A real one, with great acreage and other chickens and a loving family...  They went to a co-worker's farm, so in a small sense they are still in the family.  I'm pleased with the way it worked out.  I'll miss them, for sure, but I know they'll be OK in their new digs.

I think you would have been better off to have re-homed the neighbor.
