    I posted these girls before but not much interest. Trying again. Freeda is a red sexlink, lays daily, she's mostly blind, but can see a little. She requires a heat source with this cold weather.
    Monica is an amberlink, she's a normal chicken, loves people and will follow you anywhere. She's the only chicken I have that fully accepts Freeda and because of that they must go together.
    They are both just under a year old, I am getting eggs daily from both.

    She looks adorable. I have a special needs chicken too. I have a very friendly flock that loves almost everyone and everything. To bad I live so far away, I would take them in a heart beat! Hope you find someone that would love to have new additions to there flock.

    I'd take them in a heartbeat, but I'm in South Carolina. How old are they?

    I'd love to have them, but how would we get them to SC? Would it traumatize them badly to ship? I fairly new at this so don't know too much how adult chickens would respond to shipping.

    I would glady take them. I have a comet that can barely see already and she is a total love bug. We also just got a barn together and I would just give those girls so much attention, but I live in Ohio. I hate to have them shipped due to the stress. :(

    Hi there -- I just saw your post and am looking for a couple of hens.
    I have a great little chicken setup from the British company "Omlet" -- called an Eglu.
    It holds 2 standard hens or 3 bantams.
    I live in Putnam County NY and Springfield MA is about 3 hrs. from me.
    If your girls are still available, maybe we could meet in the middle somewhere?
    Also, I can send you photos of the eglu in my yard.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Have you found a home? I have a hen with a crippled leg who could use the company. My chickens free range. Can she get around?
