    Hello!

    Did you want chickens for eggs or meat? This is kind of late in the season to start with chickens, but I'm sure you could probably find some.

    Hi Trisha! How is it going? Is he settled now? Are you still looking for more hens? I might have a lead for 2 and could drive again to meet you but don't want to get your hopes up.

    ]I hope your taking precautions so that doesn't happen again! Otherwise this new olive her will meet the same fate[​IMG]

    Tara,
    It was a weird incident that had not ever occurred before and likely will not again. She cares for her tiny flock deeply.
    The olive egger rooster is safe and wonderfully cared for on a farm in a large pen (and not a soup pot!). I was asking if he had settled down a little as he was rambunctious upon meeting her older hen. :D
