I got to vent. I put out on freecycle a add for "free roosters to good homes" and I was picky about where they went. I had a person come by and tell me they are vegitarians with 100 acres and they have 100+ chickens and needed a few roosters to help the hens out there in the wild. They "love roosters" and they "are chicken crazy" and on and on about it.... 5 days later, on craigslist... i see a add from the town they live in for roosters for $10 - the VERY breeds I GAVE them - 8 birds in all. (edit to add: the phone numbers matched so I had the right person) I just wanted to give them a good home and they played the "animal lover" who just wants eggs and roosters to guide hens. This is the second time this has happened to me. I think I find good people to take home my extra birds and I am VERY kind in giving them away for free since they are all purebreds and most are breeder stock. It OUTRAGES me! Obviously, in such short time...less than a week... they had no intention of keeping them. They just flip birds. Am I wrong for getting totally POed!?!? I mean, I hatched these birds, raised them... paid for their feed... and these JERKS and THEIVES come in with their "we want them as pets" BS and outright LIE so I say, "sure, you sound like good people" and then find that they just turn around and sell them!!! I mean, I even gave them a bantam barnevelder roo for FREE! I thought he would be better there because he and his brother were starting to fight too much. He needed more hens than I could give him at the time... I mean... really!?!? A bantam barnevelder hatching egg is $9.... DON'T THESE PEOPLE FEEL GUILTY!?!?!? OH I'm mad. And I will add that I emailed her a very "wordy", yet polite, email and I will tell everyone around not to give them animals. I especially like the part of my email that said "if you are into getting free things to turn around and sell, please stick to items and leave animals out of it. It's cruel to pass them around like they mean nothing." I just wanted to vent to people who would understand that just because you have extras to find homes for doesn't mean you don't care about them.
