Our landlady is selling our home. No more Fort Doom! We are struggling to buy a home of our own, but are lost in paperwork and time lines and will likely have to find a temporary apartment to live in for a few weeks? months? *holding back tears* years...or forever? If this is our immediate future, with time running out fast and no real chicken-friendly options in sight, we must give them up! If it comes to that, and I will know soon (must be out by Dec. 1) if it will, my stubbornly optimistic hope that one of you fine people would take them... at least for now. If someone could just take them till we can find a home... they will pay rent in eggs, they are very good birds.... I love them and do not want to give them up!!!!!! They are used to ranging during the day, but go back to the coop each night (with only one exception) They are comfortable with small children and are used to cats and dogs. They get along well together and did even when we had WAY more roosters than we should. They are not show quality, but they are beloved pets and lay at least 4 beautiful eggs a day for us. We raised every single one of them from the time they were a day old... and it is so hard to write about them like this. So here is my offer: If you can and would like to take them (and you promise to take good care of them!) we would leave them with you. You would get all the eggs and feathers and free bug control we will be missing while they are with you. We would come to reclaim them when we have a place to keep them. I have to be realistic and say that may not happen. In that case, it means a free flock of chickens for whomever is generous enough to help us out. We live just south of Medford, Oregon, but if it means finding them a good home we can transport them outside the valley.
