    This looked like the only place my posting might fit in appropriately. I have so many hens and they are excellent layers. The problem is Im a sucker for a broody hen so I have more chickens than really fit comfortably on my property. If you are interested in adding to your flock or starting a new one, and live in the SF bay area, I can help you out. I live in the Richmond/San Pablo/El Sobrante area. My hens are banties and all are around one year old. They continued to lay all through the winter when I was reading folks lament about their lack of eggs from their hens. If you are interested please give me a private message and I will get back to you as soon as I get the message. Please, good homes only as my girls have all been raised in a loving environment. Im not offering them up for the stew pot!
    Thanks,
    Robin

    Craigslist them maybe, but weed out the bad ones.

    OK, thank you for that suggestion. I was thinking of that.

    Put it under the 'for sale' section here on the forum. You'll get more hits that way.

    I was wondering it that might not be my problem. Thank you. In the mean time I did post on Craigs list too. Thanks for that suggestion nudge.

    Im packing their bags as I type this;)
    Thanks so much. I think the posting under the topic "FOR SALE" may help.

    Lobzi, I'm going to have the same problem as you soon. I keep wanting to add hens as I find new breeds I like. I have 21 hens, several are different variations of the same breed, and all are laying age. I now have a brooder full of chicks -- raised 4 of my own BCMs, and bought Welsummer, Speckled Sussex and Rhode Island chicks. I'm out of room!!!

    I just love the camaraderie on here. I wish I had shared my situation on here sooner rather than shouldering it alone, thank you all![​IMG]
