    We have three (3) 5-week-old hen chicks that need to be re-homed. These chicks were raised by two little girls that love them and want to see them go to a safe and caring environment.
    We are looking for someone who knows how to SAFELY integrate such young chicks into their existing flock of laying hens (or) who want to start a new flock with these sweet little hen chicks.
    The chicks are free and we will deliver them to you anywhere in San DiegoCounty.
    Their breeds are:
    - White Plymouth Rock Hen Chick
    - Buff Wyandotte Hen Chick
    - Standard Black Cochin Hen Chick
    Please contact me with interest and thank you!

    Are these current pictures? I am in Chula Vista with ten 4 week old chicks, these are my first chicks so I have never integrated before though but they should all be about the same size.

    Hi urbanhippy,
    Thank you for your interest! These photos were taken about 1.5 week ago at about 3.5 weeks old. The Standard Black Cochin chick is smaller than the other 2. They're bigger now, but should be comparable in size to your 4 week olds, since they're only about a week older than yours. The White Plymouth Rock Hen Chick (1st picture) is the biggest and is our dominant hen. When we got the chicks at 1 week old, she was the 2nd largest, but matured more quickly than the other 2. I can take new photos for you today if you like, and will try to include something in the photo for scale. I'll just need to figure out how to keep them still long enough to snap a photo :)

    Greetings,

    Are you still looking for these chick to be adopted?

    I am completely new to the entire thought of having chickens and have to ask the obvious question, why are you getting rid of them?

    I am in Carlsbad and we have no pets. As a family with 4 kids we go through eggs like laundry soap and I've always been weary of what is in them even after the whole SEFS thing..I think it would be a great thing for the kids, as well as sourcing some eggs that I know woudl be taken care of..

    thanks!
