Hiya everyone- I'm Kat from Cortland, NY area and just recently moved back home to NY from NC where I was caring for my elderly father. My son and I want to raise some free range chickens here on this farm property we rent ( the cows outnumber the citizens here). At first we were thinking of just ordering chicks but with the need for heat lamps, speciall considerations and with the cats in the home we decided to try to either rescue some hens and a rooster locally or purchase pullets already started. At any rate I saw this group and decided to join, hoping for some much needed advice!

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-

Welcome! Craigslist often has listings for grown chickens. If you join your state's thread, there may be some members looking to sell or rehome some of their flock too. Good luck!

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

It's nice to have you here. Once you have 20 posts, you can use the buy-sell-trade forum (it includes a free re-homing section). You might be able to find some birds close by you through that
