    We have 20 laying hens and 3 roosters. They are one year old next month. They are picking each feathers and I think its because of over crowding. My wife cant handle it anymore and I cant handle her anymore. She has called the MSPCA and has made arrangements for this Sunday. I am hoping that someone near us can take some. The three roosters are very friendly and have watched TV with us. They have never attacked and are very friendly. We have R.I reds, Bard rocks, production Reds, golden comets, light brahmas, and amberlinks. We live in Pepperell, :(Mass and you can reach us at 978-433-8264. They are free to good homes.

    You should post this in the auction section, even if you are just giving them away.

    Put an add on Craigslist. Last year I missed out on a laying flock because we didn't have the coop built. Some lady 10 minutes from me gave her entire flock and goat herd away as they were forced to move and couldn't get a place where they could keep the livestock.

    Aww - best of luck rehoming them, I wish I was a little closer to your area.
    I agree about posting them on ~ that is a very popular site and every
    time I find something on there it is taken within an hour. [​IMG]

    Look on the Where am I/where are you section of this forum to find some BYCers in your area who might want your roos. You'll make some local friends too!

    ^^^ What Sunny said. Be sure to post on the NH and Vermont threads, too, since you are close to those states. Heck.. someone in CT might even be willing to make the trip.
