    I am curious as if there is a place to find homes for my chickens. When I start to get too many. All my chickens are pets so I would hate to just give them to a farmer who will eat them because they are pretty tame, and I just can't think of it!!! I have a new batch of babies and I am sure by next spring I will be over run. I like raising them but I can only keep so many at a time. Any info on this would be greatly appreciated. I am just too attached to have them eaten. I know I prob sound like a dumb dumb, but I like my little friends.[​IMG]

    Try posting in your local feed and seeds and always interview those who take the birds!!!!!

    Honestly, I do. See that they know how to take care of them to and if they don't seem interested in knowing what you're feeding them, etc.....just say to them,,,,you know I better check with Hubby or Sister to see if she's already sold these birds.

    I will prescreen over the phone....Just to be sure of the purpose of the birds we sell.....Call me a little silly, but I love our birds. We've put a lot of loving care and feed into them and I care how they will be treated.

    If people want to buy and try birds as they tell me and they come to buy and plan to keep them in a box while they build a coop, no way would I sell to them. Since we are a full time farm, I will tell them to check back with me when the coop is done....

    I also refer them to our new book and am thinking of doing a local training on "so you want some chickens".

    Hope this helps and have a blessed day.
