    I am having predator problems and I need to re-home my babies, as much as I love them I can't keep them safe. I've gone from 25+ chickens to 15. They must go to pet homes and I would love for at least the standards go together and the batams go together.

    3 Buff Orpington Hens
    2 Buff Orpington Pullets (laying)
    2 EE Hens (Laying blue green eggs)
    1 Batam Black Cochin (Currently Broody)
    1 White Silkie hen (threatening broody)
    1 BB Red Serama Rooster
    2 Black Serama Hens
    1 Mottled Hen (Currently Broody)
    1 "Cream-colored" Hen

    I live an hour from the VA border near Durham, Pick up only. Must be willing to keep me updated on how everyone is doing.

    Please email me as I don't check the website often - [email protected].

    I can get pictures upon request.

    I would love to have the silkie. I live in Cleveland, Tn. Let me see how far away you are from me. Can you ship in case Im too far away to drive?

    Darn shame, I'd love to take the bantams, but you're too far for me. [​IMG]

    I live in Asheboro and have a pet flock of 42 chickens of various breeds.

    I would take a few of them but I have no clue when I could get up to Durham to get them.

    Maybe someone else will volunteer to take them and provide them a safe home.

    I am interested to know what kind of predators you are having problems with. I can let you borrow 2-3 live traps if you are having coon or possum problems. You can send me a pm and I may be able to help you with the predators.

    I have gotten a lot of replies and I think I have found the right home for all of them.


    I am pretty sure it is a weasel (blood sucked from the neck, crops eaten), I have a live trap but it has not caught whatever it is.

    This also has come after a stint of fighting a fox which has left my babies unable to free-range which just isn't fair to them.

    Thanks for everyone's support.

    I'm so sorry for your preditor problems and giving them away. Everywhere has preditors and its so frustrating!
