    So I live in the city and I recently got chickens from a friend that was moving. Now I have like 8 chickens and I don't know how to get rid of them! I regret so much accepting them in the first place because I can't afford having chickens [​IMG] My friend wasn't taking good care of them and when she gave them to me they were all bones! I already tried craiglist but no one wants them. How can I get rid of them? it's an emergency since I don't have any cracked corn or something for them to eat. What can I do? I'm scared to cull them [​IMG] any help will be appreciated.

    I know this sounds ridiculous, but I'm thinking in just dropping them off a few blocks away from my house! [​IMG] It's really that BAD! I need to get rid of them because I don't want to see them die in front of my eyes [​IMG]

    I can't believe this is happening [​IMG]

    Do you have a Animal Shelter that can take them, I know our Shelters take Chickens.

    Then I don't know what I'm supposed to do. I can cull them, but I wont because that's just wrong. I will feel very bad if I did that.

    Where do you live? And no, do NOT just drop them off somewhere. That is wrong and cruel.

    You can feed them oatmeal, salad, thawed frozen peas, etc...

    If you do not want to feed them, butcher and eat them.

    Post in your states thread, maybe someone near by can take them.

    Put an ad in the local paper, put a" free chicken" post in the vets office & especially at the feed store & DEFINITELY here on BYC. What area are you in?. In the mean time, they love bread, cereal, or just about any table scraps.
