    I didn't know where to put them so I put them under (pets) because they are my pets. Should I have put them in farming? [​IMG]

    I have 5 roos and only 8 hens so I could not keep them all. Thak's the reason I'm getting rid of them. [​IMG]

    Do you think I put them in the right place?

    I tend to get flagged for some reason when I put them under pets so in this area I put them under farm and livestock. It's because apparently there are some in this area who think that by charging 15 for a chicken is "selling" vs 500 for a "rehoming fee" on a dog isn't.

    Either section would be fine I'd think.

    Yes, under farm & garden and also in general. You may get flagged by the overzealous flaggers by posting chickens in pets.

    Quote:I think that if you specifically say rehoming fee that you will be less likely to get flagged. There are some real freaks out there that think it's their job to keep everything in line and in it's place according to the exact rules etc.

    Farm & Garden or Pets should be fine I think. I've seen chickens in both sections.

    i only really look for chickens in the farm section, and yeah people flag everything on my craigslist. I cant even put a WTB in the farm section for a farm item. I think that is dumb.

    Trust me. I've tried "rehoming fee of $x" as per rules but my concluding thought is that apparently, chicken aren't pets to the flaggers. Free doesn't even work for rosoters. [​IMG]

    Think there are some more sane people who "troll" the farm garden section vs pets.

    Craigslist is a real pain to sell chickens I always get flagged no matter what I write down.

    I did put a re-homing fee. So if I get flagged does that mean they will remove them. Then I could I put them under farming? Or do I need to wait? By the way thanks for your help.
