    I am failing to see how rehoming animals you no longer wish to keep is mean, cruel, nasty or otherwise.

    Remember not everyone is cut out to appreciate these gorgeous birds. I think you have to be a special person to love and care for chickens like we do, so better for someone else. The person sounds like it was a passing fancy but wants a good home for them.[​IMG]

    Quote:agreed. I think it's good that once he got the birds, realized they are not for him, and is re-homing them. it is better than turning them loose, or leaving them to die.

    Personally if I can't use a bird or don't like it I eat it or sell it. (or give it away if I really like the person)

    I currently have a 2 month old chick (not sure of it's sex) that is crippled. I won't eat it because I don't know what crippled it and I don't eat birds who's statues I am unsure of, and I don't believe in killing a creature unless one it's suffering, a danger to me or mine, or I intend on eating it. So I'll be offering i up to anyone who wants it once I am sure it is not a disease that has crippled it (I don't want to risk bringing an illness to someone else's flock.)

    Quote:I agree with you. Even amongst chicken breeders sometimes you get birds that seem good, but after sometime becomes disheartening or just not what you thought they were. I had OEGB but due to all of the difficulties with hatching and it was the OEGB because other birds were just fine I just gave up after two-three years.

    My little cousin and aunt admired my little pair though because they were a beautiful pair of birds, I passed them down to my little cousin for free because it is A. more room for birds I do plan to keep. B. A good home for them and C. It brings joy to a little red headed girl who's only about four and needs gentle little birds to play with. Not to mention it hooks another generation on chickens [​IMG].

    Trying to find them new homes is responsible, not mean in any way. And from his CL ad, I am not sure any of us know how he feels, felt, or that he thought they were a toy.

    The part in slant is very nice, the only part in this ad that would make me think he cares for these birds.
