Both are 2.5 years- they have been raised together. Would be lovely to keep them together, but not a necessity Barred rock hen Pekin drake My flock is down to 3 and my RIR has peritonitis. I have a toddler, and don't have the time required to raise new chicks AND the owner of our house is moving in her son. Chickens are illegal here- so finding a house that's ok with me bringing them is SLIM. These are family pets; very social/tame. It's going to be difficult to say goodbye to them- but I think it's in their best interest.
