    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. :/ 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.
