I've tried so hard to find a good place on our farm for my big chickens and it just doesn't exist. With a grand total of 16 dogs between us neighbors, it isn't going to work. I know someone who is so determined to get chickens that she offered to pay for them. Its perfect. They'd be pets!!!! She lives way out in the middle of nowhere where they could free range and have the whole barn to themselves! I could get a few more banties and everyone would be happy, right? No, im afraid not. Two of the chickens are so attached. One sits on the other at night and acts like a mommy to him. The terrible thing is that I want to keep her, not him. The woman is coming tomorrow to get the chicks! Will my girl be heartbroken to have her baby taken away? I really need to know this soon so I can plan who goes where. She'll only be alone for a little bit while Im ordering some banty friends for her. Maybe shell accept them as her own b/c her 'son' is gone? She is only six weeks old and thinks she is a mommy. She's a Sebright x Mutt. Sebrights aren't sopposed to be broody?????
