    I checked it out. Here is the terms for adoption through them.
    Chicken Run Rescue Adoption Terms:

    commitment for the life of the bird. Chickens can live 14 years and so require the same committment as dogs and cats.

    prohibit slaughter, breeding, fighting or exhibit
    limit adoption only as a companion animal not a food animal (not to produce eggs for profit or breeding purposes)

    guarantee to provide proper care including food, water shelter, fresh air, exercise, companionship with other same species animals and veterinary care as for any other companion animal

    allow inquiries about the care of this animal at any time

    prohibit birds to be given away or sold without consent of CRR

    comply with the laws and ordinances enforced in the state and municipality

    certify that no one in the household/property where the animal will reside has been charged with or convicted of animal abuse in any state.

    Seems like a lot of rules. This is not for people who raise chickens for food or sale.

    That is a lot of rules!! Seems pretty impossible, really. Well I guess they will be taking care of them for their long lives!!

    But if you found a female and used the eggs for your family...

    I know this is an old post - but....I stumbled upon the chickens on the Chicken Run Rescue site and I was wondering if anyone has ever adopted chickens from a resue like this?

    Any experiences?

    I would like to add 2 or 3 chickens to my small pet flock and I've always adopted cats and dogs, so I was intrigued by the idea of adopting chickens.

    I spoke to the founder of chicken run rescue asking her to help me rehome some roosters and she went off on me!!! She gave me this speech about ordering from hatcheries ect.... Then refused to help. I wasn't impressed with her at all. This was when i first started with chickens a few years ago and had no idea about the hen to roo ratio but found out the hard way so in a panic i called her for help because at the time i didn't know what to do.
