    I have a roo and 2 hens that I need to find a home for. They are free because they look awful right now. I have had to break the hens from egg eating and picking each others feathers out due to a lack of protien in thier diet. They have blu kote on the bald spots as well, to make sure they heal and no more pecking occurs. I have been recieving 2 un-broken eggs everyday now for about a week and see some feathers growing back in thier bald spots. I just dont have the room to keep them seperated from the other chickens as much as they need to be while healing. They arent the friendliest of birds either. Someone would have to want to take a lot of time to try to tame them and make them better pets. I have no idea how to ship live adult chickens so I really dont know if I could do that, but might consider it. If you are willing to give these guys a try, please let me know. Thanks!

    Yes, please let us know where you are at. I can certainly pick them up if they are close to me.

    Okay, I see you are in the mid lands. Near Newberry? Or closer to Columbia?
