    Well, we moved and were supposed to build a coop at the new house for my chickens, but hubby changed his mind. So now I have to sell off my flock.

    So I'm keeping 4, and the rest found new homes. I have only 3 left:

    10 week olds: 2 Silver Spangled Hamburgs, 1 Golden Laced Polish. Theses chicks are form McMurray hatchery and were bought as females, except the Golden Polish, who was the free rare chick, I'm pretty sure that the polish is a rooster.

    Asking $6 each, all 3 for $10.

    I would prefer if all these birds went to non slaughter homes, since they are my pets, and I am quite upset about having to get rid of them. They are located in Watertown, CT. Thank you.

  3. First of all [​IMG] to your husband..
    I'm sorry you're having to rehome your birds.

    I looked you up and you're 2 hours from me one way which is just too far for me. Do you even come closer to RI for anything, maybe we could meet somewhere?
    I'd LOVE to take your two polish.

    Convince your husband to let you keep your pets???

    You will find a home for them easily. Craigslist Litchfield County works well.

    I agree with other posters that you should get to keep the pets you love. If my hubby wanted to have a hobby I sure wouldn't make him beg for it. Unless it involved bringing home smelly fish guts to leave on the kitchen table or something gross![​IMG]

    While marriage is about negotiation and sometimes compromise, I think you can meet from both sides. Maybe you don't need all those chickens, but a half dozen wouldn't be a big imposition on your husband, especially since the eggs are a benefit. Promise him breakfast in bed for a month's worth of Sundays in exchange for a coop big enough for 6 hens. That should do it. [​IMG]

    Well I just talked to my husband, and I get to keep some of my birds [​IMG] after all. Now the hard part of deciding which ones. The w.c. black polish and brown leghorn for sure....

    I know it's lousy to have to get rid of my pets, but I can see where he's coming from. Building a coop for 20 birds won't be too cheap or easy, we are both very busy these days, and to top it off, I'm unexpectedly expecting. [​IMG] So I'm more than happy with 4 birds, like he said, it's my house too, right?

    Congratulations on the "unexpected" bundle of joy! [​IMG]
    And for getting to keep some of your hennies! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I agree that building a sturdy home for 20 is a bit of a task. I was lucky to buy a house with a small barn that was big enough for a good number of chickens, waterfowl and a couple goats too. If we'd had to build from scratch, it's likely I wouldn't have accumulated such a large collection of poultry.

    That's great news that you get to keep some! If I were closer I would take some off your hands! Good luck in finding them all homes!!
