Hi, I need HELP from fellow chicken people. I have recently become a statistic - through divorce and a long stretch of unemployement I am forced to try and sell my house before it's foreclosed. Thankfully I have a Brother in Fort Collins Colorado that is willing to try and help me and my 12 yr old daughter relocate. We live in a very rural area of Minnesota where farms, cows and chickens are part of daily life. Here's my Impending Disaster.... we have 16 chickens & 4 ducks. I have been looking for a rent-to-own home or rental house for weeks now. Nobody in Colorado seems to think chickens are pets. I keep getting suggestions from insensative people telling us to just "eat" them or give them away. Would they tell me to do that with our dog.... These chickens are very important to my daughter. She has raised them since they hatched. She has names for each of them, she plays with them almost daily. One silly rooster even lets her dress him up in little costumes she makes for him. She cried herself to sleep last night because she couldn't stop thinking about having to give them up. And I must admit - I am shedding my fair share of tears over it too. They are our PETS. Does anybody live in the Loveland / Ft. Collins area with Chickens? Can anybody offer some advice or helpful suggestions? Thank you.
