Hi all you BYCers. Just had to share this story. I resued a 7-8 month old gamey mutt hen from deplorable conditions; small cage life and had her for 2 weeks to asses her physically and mentally. After interacting with her I realized that she was a people and not a chicken. She DID NOT like to be with other chickens and would fly to my shoulders everytime I would open the coop. When I free ranged her, ANYONE could walk over to her and pick her up. She loved to be held. I knew that this hen was "special". I advertized her on Craigslist and found the perfect family!. They have an 8 yr. old high functioning autistic son that loves the 7 hens they own already. They wanted to find a hen just for him and I knew she was the one. They came to get her today....it was a very sad day but a happy day for me. I will miss her, but I know she will have a great home and somehow fulfill her destiny. I like to rescue and rehome hens, I think it is my calling.
