We own beautiful pet chickens and are in an awful quandary. We have 2 gorgeous, sweet hens (both 1.5 years old), a Rhode Island Red (Ginger) and a Silver Laced Wyandotte (MaryAnn). They are the best of friends. Weve tried for the past 2 months to integrate our 3 month old babies but the big girls keep going after the little ones and it's wreaking havoc. Weve come to a terribly painful decision that we need to get rid of one or both of the big girls. It absolutely breaks my heart to do this. I am looking for a loving, chicken-oriented home that might want to take them in. They are daily golden-brown egg-layers and have very sweet and funny dispositions (other than with the 2 little chick-invaders!). I feel that in another home they will no longer be alpha chickens, just normal members of the flock. I will only give them to someone who would treat them as pets or part of an egg-laying backyard flock. I will not give them to anyone who is interested in meat-birds. I am in the Los Angeles area. Would prefer local but will travel some distance to place them in the right home. Will send pix if interested. Thanks.
