    I don't think it would be a good idea to ship these hens. Not sure how I would be able to ship them. I'm in South, Texas about 2 hours from Houston. I just googled Roma, and boy you are near the Mexico
    border. That is a quite a way for shipping flighty birds. These hens I have are 1 year old and are laying eggs like crazy. I have Barred Hollands, Barred Rocks and Danish Brown Leghorns. The Barred Hollands and the Danish Brown Leghorns are laying the white eggs. Almost all of my Barred hens have no butt feathers as they have picked them all off. They are some wild flighty birds. Not my cup of tea.

    Quote:Yeah, nice done. Uh well the type of chickens does not matter or their social behavior, becouse, they will have plenty of room to run around, but yeah your right it is a major distance traveling, well now, as much as i want them I just seem to loose hope. Well if you have an idea plz reply back, thankyou for your thoughtfulness.

    Where near Houston are you, Cheesy? I will likely be visiting a friend on the northwest side (Waller, near Hempstead) soon. I am south of San Antonio and could set up part of my barn for laying hens. How many do you have? The coop area I have set up is 6x36.

    Quote:You are quite a distance from me. I know where Hempstead and Waller are located as we travel to College Station to visit our sons. I'm in Louise. Some folks on this site seem to think it terrible to give chickens away. I have no idea what to ask for my hens, I've seen some ads where people are selling their laying hens for $7-$10 each.

    Right now, I'm just frustrated my hens have plucked feathers off and they are plain ugly. I want beautiful fully feathered fluffy butts roaming around my yard. LOL! [​IMG]

    Not to insult, but have you wormed them? Do they need vitamins or something? Is it just the flightier breeds are more apt to do this? When I got some turkeys from the guy at the feedstore, he had some sort of red paint on their butts to prevent picking (he said). Only one (of 30) was picked on and not much at all, so maybe it worked?
