​Well UI am intterested. Send me a private message. What kind? How old? How many? What price? I do eventually want more. I got the ones I have from a lady in Bellville so I don't mind a bit of a drive to pick them up (don't think I like the idea of shipping live hens). Thanks.

Ah yes. I get it. I have planned room for 20 hens at any one time.

So sorry that you lost most of the flock. That just plain sucks.  Hope you fixed the door. I'm sure that you probably realize or may have heard that killing a bird of prey is a federal offense that can get you some substantial fines and jail time, so it's good that you let her go. "All hawks and owls are federally protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (16 USC, 703-711). These laws strictly prohibit the capture, killing, or possession of hawks or owls without special permit."  http://icwdm.org/handbook/birds/HawksOwls.asp   Most are protected by state statute as well...

 

Of course there are those who prescribe to the SSS method of remedy, but then due to the above, that last "S" is the MOST important of the three... just sayin 

 

Oh, and just so others can be made aware, many of these raptors have chips for tracking purposes...  So that second "S" should be on your hated neighbor's land rather than your own...  again, justsayin

I know and I wouldn't have done anything to it anyway. It did scare me a little though. That bird was not happy to be caught in there, so I stood back and used a garden rake to open the door.

Welcome!  I'm in Cypress too! (for now, anyway)  My 6 month olds have just started laying, which is nice, since the older hens have shut down for the winter!  I'm still amazed that I haven't had any complaints about my roosters in the 7 years I've had chickens here.

Ok. So I GOTTA know. Where in Cypress? I don't have a rooster but I hear one every day. To me it is a wonderful sound. No complaints at all from me. :-)

Off Cypress-N-Houston and Eldridge.  Small subdivision with NO HOA!  (yay!)  Only restrictions, animal-wise, we have is, no pigs.  I have 7 roosters, currently.  I need to let 2 go soon.

We very well be very near to each other. I will send you a Private message. I would love to meet your flock and get any advice I can.
