    I wouldn't. I never trust getting adult birds, especially of craigslist. They'll probably die a day after she gets them.

    Does she have other birds? Does she have space for more birds or is she doesn't already have some does she have a coop etc. for them? If it's a go as far as room/coop and you're sure she wants some I think it's a great gift idea. If you have a place to quarintine them that would even be better. That way if you gave them to her for Christmas they would be more then 1/2 way thru quarintine and you would be confident that they won't drop over dead before New Years.

    In my humble opinion, buying a live animal for another person as a gift is never a good idea. If you want to give her the chickens, tell her that you have located some and would like to give them to her as a gift. Allow her the opportunity to go with you to see the chickens for herself.
