    I've got 28 standard hens all around 8 weeks old. I only have room for 10. Around 6 are spoken for so that leaves 14 birds
    that need homes.

    They came in a Rainbow Pullet Pack assortment from Meyers.
    I've fed them Blue Seal Organic Starter and they are now on
    Blue Seal Grower Cal, vegies, rice, bugs, grass & the kitchen
    sink. They prowl my yard for an hour or so a day.

    These birds are trained to attack. If you have food in your
    hand your in trouble. They commonly mistake shoulders
    for roosts and get very upset when you wake the up from
    their nap because you need to take them off your lap.

    Breeds:
    Various whites - Leghorns, Cali Whites, etc...
    A Buff or Two
    Golden Campine
    Barred or Plymouth Rock
    Australorp

    I'm located in central Connecticut. I really don't wanna ship.
    These birds will only go to an experienced chicken lover
    who wants eggs, not dinner. [​IMG]

    Sorry the 3 Silkies are my wife's flufferbutts. She'd get rid of me first.
    I don't want to ship them. I think it would stress them too much.
    Actually, it would stress me too much.

    Thanks for the interest.

    Hope your still holding back a couple for me! My next trip (returning home from Maine) will be July 9 or 10 when I come through your area.
    In the second picture, sort of in the middle to the left is a group of four, the one with light brown head and bluish/grey feathers, is she spoken for? Cool colors!

    Quote:Hah, the "My wife would get rid of me before the silkies" reminds me of my mom when it comes to her siamese.

    Completely off subject; But your signature says you have a heeler/pit mix, and I wanted to say, I envy you, those are my two favorite breeds of dogs. I miss my blue. :\\


    Good day!
