    I have a smallish coop/tractor for sale, asking $275 for it.

    the pen is 4x6 with attached 2x4 house, stands about 2.5' tall. house roof lifts, pen cover lifts. or i have one with doors on the house end (and roof still lifts) asking $325 for it.

    no chicken wire, i use 1x1 welded wire only, so it's raccoon proof. there is a 2' section at the far end from the house covered with clear plastic roofing to keep feed under, and the house is roofed with "ondura' roofing.

    i'm located near Roanoke, if you're interested pm me...

    ok well, figured i'd post here to pass along...

    I picked up some cochins a couple weeks ago, but got way more roos than hens... so i'll pass them along to anyone who wants/needs them. FREE! i'd rather give them a chance than just putting all the extra roos in the freezer.

    all bantam cochins, there's a white, blue, black and a partridge roo, all of whom need new homes.

    if you're interested pm me... i'm located near Roanoke.

    Just for anyone that's interested. I raise several breeds that are show quality. I'm trying to get an idea of what I'm going to be hatching in the spring. So anyone that is interested in chicks or hatching eggs. I'd like to start a list so I'll be prepared. I have: Stukel line barred rocks , german line New hampshires, Columbian Rocks, Delawares, Rhode Island Reds (SC), bantam barred rocks and bantam buff brahmas. I'll be starting up the incubator in mid feb, providing the girls are laying by then. If anyone is intersted in these breeds please contact me so I can start my list. I sell most of my chicks at $3 each(stukel line barred rocks will be $5 each). Hatching eggs are $15/dozen.

    I'm also taking names for wait list on my mille fleur cochins, red and silver grey dorkings & LF and bantam blrw...

    i've got a bunch of the cochins hatched already, growing out to see who gets to join the breeding pen. the dorkings and blrw are all free ranging right now, so no hatching eggs at the moment, but as soon as i have them in breeding pens i'll be incubating and selling eggs. i don't anticipate hatching anything before the end of March tho, since i've got some vacation planned and don't want babies to worry about.

    PM me if you're interested in eggs or chicks.

    here's some pics i took a few days ago.
    my free range group of chicklets... 3 cockerels 7 pullets from my mille fleur cochin pen, with a dorking pullet (colored project).

    i only posted a few of my own breeding
