My 19 (mostly different breeds, cold hardy) are going to have a one month lapse while I move into my new home (only 2 hours away, same elevation, great coop ready for them there). No rooster, minimum noise.
Seller of home won't let me bring them in early. Buyer of my current home won't let me keep them here--this is with already offering total maintenance, and they can keep all eggs! Have asked around my community (pretty rural, so I thought someone might let me do something temporary)--no go. All of the chicken keepers here are unlikely, too, since adult birds don't assimilate well to change. Have put out ads locally, in new location, Craigslist, etc (even offering rent), but nothing. Plus, don't know what I'd keep them in for that one month.
I absolutely will not "get rid of them" in any way!
Please, please--any help? I have 3 weeks from today!
Thanks in advance,
