    No kidding, one place not far from here even have a few breeds up for adoption I am looking for. Thanks! I am going to get these birds out of the shelter and onto a farm like they belong.

    Nevrmind I guess, they won't adopt any out more than 90 miles from their place. The terms of adoption say the birds cannot be used for breeding, egg production for profit, or slaughter, so basically using a chicken like the farm animal it is. They want all their birds to become someone's pet. It's too bad...

    I never got that far I looked and noticed everything was just too far away, but I think they stipulate no breeding for all animals but the problem is not all rescues are listed on all sites and the local animal shelters aren't on there either and they might have chickens or other farm animals but I wonder the adoption costs on them as well I knew one rescue focused on dogs but they did get occasional other animals just because sometimes someone had 20-30 dogs 2-3 cats and a few other animals and the rescue took the whole lot rather than have the shelter put all the dogs down because they'd be so overwhelmed with animals.....

    I am pretty sure that the breeding thing is just for mammals ...you cant neuter or spay birds...lol so I would call them and just check into it. besides they are much better off on a farm than in a shelter =]
