    I've been a Lurker for a long time and have learned a lot from this site by doing so. Until last night I had 43 mixed and rare variety of hens now I am down to 37 which brings me to the reason I am no longer lurking. I am hoping beyond hope someone can help direct me to a place where I can find adult birds for sale. I need to replace my son's pet German Spitzhauben hen before he comes home from his dad's house....Her name was Speckles and he carried her around like a parrot and pretended he was a pirate. We have lost other chickens and he doesn't accept the "This is farm life" explanation well. He really loved that bird and we are heartbroken about it. As an aside, electric netting works great unless coons figure out they can scale the side of your barn and drop right down into your chicken run...
