    Two Free Easter Egger Hens

    Two almost three-year-old Easter Egger Hens available to a good home. They are great free-range birds, cold-hardy, come running for treats, but don't love being held. Both are poor to fair layers of green eggs. You must assure me that you have a proper coop for them if they'll be kept as layers...
