    I posted this in the re-homing forum, but I figure it won't hurt to put it here too.

    I have 7 hens:

    Two Production Red (brown eggs)
    Two Rhode Island White (brown)
    Three Ameracauna (blue).

    These were hatched in March 2014.

    I get 5-6 eggs per day in warm weather, and 3-4 in winter.

    Colorado Springs, CO

    These are great hens!

    Long story, but it's a neighbor issue. Once he moves, I'll get new hens.

    I should add ... Chickens will come with an unopened 50lb bag of scratch grain, 30 lbs of mixed seed that I give as a daily treat, and whatever crumble feed I have left.

    Please PM if interested.

    I'll be posting this in all the places I listed the availability of my hens:

    When you have to put down a family dog, and when the kids ask where Spot went, sometimes people soften the blow by saying Spot went to a very special farm where he can chase bunnies all day long...

    I am pleased to say that my hens most certainly DID go to a very special farm. A real one, with great acreage and other chickens and a loving family... They went to a co-worker's farm, so in a small sense they are still in the family. I'm pleased with the way it worked out. I'll miss them, for sure, but I know they'll be OK in their new digs.

    I think you would have been better off to have re-homed the neighbor.
