So 2 months ago, I moved away from home 3 hours away. My 3 little girls are still living at my parents in a small town in a decent sized 6x6 coop, 10x10 run while I am living in the big city. I love the city and everything about it but lately I have been soooo homesick for my hens. That is it... just my girls. I think about them constantly and go to bed sick to my stomach because I got so attached to them and I know their lives can end so easily to random health issues. I feel so bad for them because my parents dont know anything about chickens. They feed them and give them water, but that's it. No one is there to hold them, talk to them or give them love which I am sure they could care less but it is still so hard for me. There is no way I can move back home because I am so happy here besides the fact that they are not here with me too. I am only 24 so life is so unsure so I wont be buying a house here for me to have the option of locating them here either. I am just so frustrated because my love for my pets is ridiculous and I miss them so easily, I get teary eyed just thinking about them. My parents are nice enough to send me picture mail over the phone for me but it just makes me miss them more. I wish I could just find someone who is dying to take in chickens near me to house them and I could go take care of them and see them whenever I want. Anyone have any helpful thoughts, advice, anything? Aghhh.
