    I have 8 white chicks that need a permanent home. I took them from a friend who couldn't keep them, but once I got them home I realized I don't have room for 8 more chickens. Pictures are here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157600375136304/

    They
    are approx 2 weeks old. I don't know the breed, they came with a batch of meat birds, but they obviously are not like the other 100+ meat birds. These are small, slim bodied, perky birds, very cute. I'm guessing maybe Leghorns or Plymouth Rocks?

    We are in Springfield, MA. I can only travel about 45 minutes, as I will have my 3 children with me too.

    Thanks!

    Very cute! You are several states away from me-so I can't rehome them. Hopefully someone will be along soon-they are nice looking birds [​IMG]

    Thanks, we're enjoying giving them a foster home.


    Does anyone have any ideas what breed they might be?

    I don't know what these are but I just wanted to say that I thought it was pretty cool how you used the pack-n-play to keep the chicks in. They look pretty content.

    Look like Leghorn or California White cockerals.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I think they have a home now. I'm taking some to a friend in Westfield, so I should be all set now.

    This is the second time I've used a pack 'n play for raising chicks. Both times, the pack 'n play was very well used, and on its way out anyway, so it made a great place for the baby chicks. It's a bit messy though, as the dust comes out the screens. I like using it... spacious, sturdy, and easy to take down.

    I'm keeping one of the chicks.. my kids (and me) are getting attached to these cuties. I'm hoping we pick a girl and not a roo. Can't wait to see what these develop into.

    Thanks!

    Hi Robin, You may want to keep more than one. Chickens are "flock" creatures and like buddies. Just a thought before you adopt them all out.

    Whisperer,

    Thanks, I actually kept two. But we already have ten chicks, 4 wks old. We just didn't have room for another nine chickens. I brought the others to their new home today, so I'm now down to my flock of 12.

    thanks,
    Robin
