    I have a young (8-9 month) hen I got with my rooster last Sunday from a breeder of red jungle fowl. She's very wild and has some feathers missing on the back of her neck from roosters holding her. I thought she was molting, but I think it's just from roosters as she was in with a flock with two roos and mine has been rough on her, too. The problem is my hens want to kill her as she's smaller. I'd like to give her to someone that would make sure she's not bullied as she seems to be a target. I'll put a picture of her up later, she's in a big dog crate now and can't be in with my flock, the barred rocks started on her and my easter eggers started too, so hopefully she can find a good home without being in with large aggressive  hens.

    If you want to pay for it and tell me where to get the appropriate shipping container. I don't want to put that much money into her, as I'm sure someone local will wind up taking her otherwise.

    i can pay for shipping and you can get a appropriate shipping box from your local SPCA just ask for a box able to ship a chicken, most likely you will get a cardboard box with holes in the top

    We have no SPCA, near me but I will do some research and try to find out, about the shipping box & cost.
