    Hi! So I'm fairly new to raising chickens and unfortunatly I am moving (pretty unexpectedly) and I can't bring my 4 ladies with me [​IMG] Does anyone know if there are barns/families looking for laying hens? They will be 1 in April and are located in New Jersey. Any advice on where I might be able to call or give them a new home?

    Hi :welcome

    Sorry to hear you are not able to take to your ladies with you :hugs I'm not sure what's available in your area as I'm in the UK. There is the buy sell trade section you could post in once you have a post count of 20. Here is the link https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/67/buy-sell-trade

    I hope you are able to find them a new home, good luck :frow

    Do you have any chicken lover neighbors or family who might take them in? Hope you have success in rehoming them.
