2 beautiful Silkie hens in need of temporary re-homing on Long Island, NY

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hello Everyone,

 

I am moving from a house to an apartment, and cannot take my chickens with me - so I am looking to provide them with a temporary or permanent new home. We will be moving into a house in October 2016, however, until then we cannot keep them since we are in an apartment.

 

- 2 Silkie Adult Hens. My husband and I raised these birds from when they were chicks. They are incredible docile and friendly (great with kids) and are very quiet. They both give about an egg or two a week.

 

- Chicken Coop built by hand. Includes the following features: 2 Skylights on roof (front and back), two side windows with chicken wire mesh, and sliding doors that close. Roosting bar in the middle with 2 hooks for food/water feeder. Sliding floor that comes out easily to clean the coop. The coop has been painted to be completely waterproof and even has awnings for the windows. It features a lock with a key to keep the chickens safe. You can fit around 5 chickens in the coop.

- A water and Food feeder is included (pictured), as well a smaller water/food feeder for chicks.

- There will be two 50 lb bags of bedding, and a 50 lb bag of chicken feed included ( i just opened the one bag of bedding and the feed bag - but this will last for at least 3 months)

I just need someone to help me provide these chicks with a new home!

 

Please let me know of any questions or concerns. Thank you.

 

I appreciate it very much.

I really wish I could have them but, that is really far away from me. hmm.png That is all right though, I will hopefully get two this April. I just need to find a hatchery that has them near me.

I'm in Binghamton, NY and I have three silkie hens in my flock. I'd love to foster/adopt them. Could meet you halfway somewhere. Let me know.

Thank you but thankfully we found a family friend that is able to keep them for us for the time being. If anything changes, I will let you know!! Thank you! 😊 It's great that there are people like you!
