Hello. We live in South Orange County California. We have a really sweet hen (Sunshine) we need to re-home. We hatched her in April and were hoping it would work out for our family to have her. However, although she's much quieter than a dog, a couple of neighbors have complained to us. She only makes very occasional noises. She loves to be petted and doesn't mind being held. She was laying an egg a day for several weeks, then went into a broody cycle, and now is not broody, but not laying. I'm sure she'll start up again. We want her to find a really good home. She's actually much prettier than this photo. I will try to get another and post it also. Thank you for considering.
