    I have 4 hens that need to go to a good home. These have been our pets for the last 2 years, so they are NOT for food. We moved the coop and found termites have taken it over and we just cannot replace it at this time. they are a blk austrolorp(Pixie), a buff orphinton(Tinker), a white rock(Ming-Ming) and a RIR(Buffy). all except for the RIR have a great temperment. The RIR acts as the flock protector so she just needs put bk in place every now and then. I am in Poinciana village 7. I am completely willing to deliver them if needed and also to see where they will call home. please let me know if anyone is willing to take on my birds. I would prefer a farm or someplace where they can have more space than my little backyard.

    thank you

    Blue II (Blu Two)

    They are all loved. Thanks for the nice comment. Human Error is the only way these guys are ever in danger- even most snakes and rodents are excluded.

    I am over in winter haven, fl. About 40 mins or so from you right under lakeland , fl.

    I have a bunch of PET hens who have their own enclosed run & coop. I would be more than happy to take them for you! They will be pets, nothing is eatin at our place but eggs.

    My yard isn't HUGE but they have a very nice setup................ spoiled with yogurt, green treats, worms picked from under the block by my 2 boys & more.

    My run is about 2x the size of the pictures below but the coop is a little smaller, it has 3 nest boxes. They would be in with 1 rooster(ameraucana) & about 8 ladies. I have some that i am putting in the new coop & run that is being built next to the goat pen. If you go on www.sillysliceofheaven.webs.com you can kinda see the coop & run. we opened the back (had bantans) to give the large fowl a larger run & a covered space to run if any hawks try to mess iwth them.

    They are gaurded by my chicken lover dog. Our first 2 chickens slept with him under a lounge every night..LOL. he has killed 4 possums trying to get into my yard! GOOD DOGGIE

    I have a one year old, I was hoping to meat in daytona... you don't have to inconvenience Pio-Pio.

    Its a four(ish) hour trip from Pio-pio to me (depending on I-4 traffic)

    I love the picts of the goats and your kids.
