Ya'll I am so sad to have to do this, but I need to re-home my flock of sweet hens. We are in Northwest Arkansas (Rogers). Along with my hens I have their coop, food, bedding, hay, diatomaceous earth, heat lamp, feeder, and home-made waterer. My husband and I need to move back to California, due to financial difficulties and to be closer to family. I would love to take them with us, but there are too many factors that weigh on the negative side for the hens. I am beyond worried about putting them through the stress of a two-day drive; we may not have room to transport their giant coop; and our next living situation may be temporary. Also, my mother's dogs are not the friendliest. Our flock of five consists of: Opal - Buff Orpington (hatched 2/18/2013) Lucy - Production Red (hatched 2/18/2013) Ethel - Production Red (hatched 2/18/2013) EDIT to add: Winifred - Golden-Laced Wyandotte (hatched 2/25/2013) - Passed 1/05/2015 Helena Bonham Chicken - Black-Sex Link (hatched 3/17/2014) The gals are great layers. I often get two eggs a day or double yolks from Opal. HBC started laying a couple of months ago (after she finally was comfortable being the newbie in the coop). With the weather change, egg-laying has slowed to about 1-3 a day. However, the day before yesterday we collected FIVE from the coop. My Reds are currently molting, so they look ridiculous -- of course. They are all fairly friendly. Opal, Winnie, and HBC don't mind being held and love to run up to you when you come outside. They were raised with my three small dogs and don't pay any mind to them. The Reds lack a bit of a personality, but they are hilarious because they are totally co-dependent and call for each other when they are roaming. I really do not want to post them on Craigslist or some place like that. I want someone who is serious about raising chickens and will take good care of them. I have dreamed of raising my own flock for years, but I never dreamed that it would be cut so short. Here is our coop. It is much nicer without the tarp (I keep it on there on extra cold days like today). It has three laying boxes (accessible from the outside for egg collection), a screened window -- that is removable for easier cleaning, and hatch door on a pulley system. It also has a skylight. It could use a bit of work, as the egg door is a bit weather worn, but it suffices as-is. I am asking for a $50 re-homing fee. Serious contacts only, please. Feed and pine shavings were purchased last week, DME and Hay Bag are nearly full. We have invested much time and love on our flock and we hope to find a home who is willing to do the same. Thank you.
