Hi, we have three lovely chickens, Sona, Regina and Natasha. I am going to France in September for six months and we need someone to foster our babies while we are away. Sona is 1.5 years old and a prodigious layer (she is the black one). She is smart and beautiful, but a little sneaky (she is always trying to figure how to get out of the enclosure). Regina is 5 months old (the white one), but already very large and laying sporadically. She is very sweet and protective of her broodmate, Natasha, the small speckled one. We are worried that something happened to Natasha when she was a peep, because she has not grown much and is not showing signs of maturing. She is also kind of slow and follows Regina wherever she goes. But she doesn't make any trouble and mostly just lays down. They are wonderful birds and we would like them to go to a good home. We would be willing to split them, but Natasha should really stay with Regina. We will supply food for the period we are away, pay any medical bills, and if you have a truck you can even use our very study chicken house! We live in Richmond California near I-80. Please contact us if you can take any or all of these birdies or pass on the info to some who might want them. If you like you can call me Brian 510 292 1958 Thanks, Backyard Chickeners!
