I have about 10 hens and 2 roosters, 3 I bought from another lady and the rest I raised since they were born. I have had them for 2 years now. they have become like part of my family one of the hens even comes in the house or sits by the back door waiting for someone to open it. she is so cute. but I have just found out I have to move and I cant take them with me, I am very sad over this. I have to find them a new home and am so upset that maybe they will be upset. I have known I needed to give away one of the roosters for awhile now he is aggressive toward people even me at times but I can pick him up and hold him and he is gentle with me (unless I put him down and turn my back). I have given roosters away before and even though I was a bit sad I got over it cause they got good homes. but this is my whole flock that has to go and im so sad. do chickens feel sadness about this too? I know this sounds nuts but will they miss me to? I really hope they wont.
