For the past several months we’ve been battling an episode of feather-picking and, after MANY attempts to correct the problem, we’ve determined it's a result of overcrowding. Consequently, we’ve reluctantly decided to rehome five of our poor, picked-on hens. If anyone is interested in taking these pitiful creatures (for free) I would love to see them live out their lives in a peaceful, safe and knowledgeable home. They are all Heritage breeds, 14 months old, excellent laying hens, in perfect health (except for some UGLY bald patches on certain birds' back ends) and they’re calm and friendly. I have NO idea if these feathers will regrow once they moult in late-summer/early fall. I am located in *Schomberg, Ontario, Canada*, which is about 45 min. northwest of Toronto; (west of Newmarket; east of Orangeville) and will be happy to deliver the birds locally. The available girls are: 2 Black Australorp; 1 Buff Orpington; 1 Dominique; and 1 Welsummer. The attached photos show the girls when they were in fine feather, before the feather-picking began.
