I have 2 BEAUTIFUL Light Brahmas that turn 3 this month. Rizzo and Marty. Both are still laying and heathly. I had a small flock of 4,(originally 5. 1 was a Roo we rehomed) but lost my sweet Sandy and Frenchie to an opposum while away on vacation last August. Absolutely devastating. I have continued to spoil my girls and love them dearly. Bringing them inside on stormy/very cold nights, or even if the mosquitoes get too bad. Nursed my Marty back to health after she was attacked by a raccoon a couple of yrs ago, and cured Rizzos sour crop last year. They are my buddies and I enjoy spending time watching them in the yard. They opened my eyes to so much. My family and I even went vegan bc of them. Getting to know our “food” changed the way we looked at things. They want to live and be loved like everything else. I’m truly thankful for them. It kills me to do this, but I know it’s whats best. They need a flock. My biggest fear is that I will lose one and the other will be left alone. I do not plan on getting anymore chickens at this time. I want a home that will let them live out their days together and care for them if they become ill. Someone who would take the time to research odd symptoms and care for them properly if need be. Someone who will spend time with them outside and talk with them. They love to help me in the yard. They’re very curious and funny. My Marty is my sweet girl. She was at the top of the pecking order with Rizzo behind her. Rizzo lives up to her name and is a bit of a crab sometimes. I blame the attack, which is understandable . She sometimes pecks me if I try and take the egg from under her, but other than that she usually keeps to herself. She doesn’t attack you, she just doesn’t like to be touched. Marty enjoys being held and sung too lol. They both enjoy music. They aren’t your average chickens. They are quite spoiled lol. They have an very large enclosed run, and enclosed coop to sleep in at night. However I always leave the door propped open so they can free range in the yard.My yard is fenced and we also have 2 dogs that go out on occasion, so they are safe and protected. I hope to find a home that allows them to free range as well. But safely.
I’ve been putting this off since last year. I just love them so much it kills me to let them go. I keep all my animals until the pass so this is hard for me. But like I said, I know they need a flock. Even just a small one. I feel if I find them a home together, it will be easier on them. I do not HAVE to get rid of them so there is no rush. I will wait until I find the right home. Please let me know if you are interested in providing a safe, loving home for my girls to live out their days.
Please don’t respond if you lose a lot of chickens to predators and are looking to replace, think chickens are just for food, would put them down at the first sign of illness, never visit with them and just keep them out back, move a lot, live with someone else, or Have zero chicken experience.
I may sound crazy. I am. About all my animals
