    Hi all. I know this is probably the wrong spot to post,as I am notorious for posting in the wrong spot (sorry Mod's). I live in Atlantic county NJ and HAVE to give my chickens away. But to someone who has the room to free range them,with a place to sleep at night (and dear god not eat them). I raised them by hand and they are quite friendly. A new job opportunity came up and I just don't know what to do,(its out of state and will be a lot of hotel living,until I get settled and figure out what I'm going to do.) I have 2 golden laced wynndotte,2 bared Plymouth,and 2 americana hens. And one New hampshire red rooster.
    They are six months old as of Jan 1st. The hens have been laying for about a month or so (and HOLY COW! I had no idea six little hens could lay so many eggs! Maybe someone close by (Buena) could border them for a small fee? I can have someone bring all the food or whatever they need. *wonders* " Do they have places like that"?

    Since you don't want to sell them or permanently rehome them, maybe a Want Ad for a Chicken Sitter long-term? Is that what you're asking for before we try to move the thread somewhere?

    Then I'll move this to the Wanted Section for you; though it says "Want to Buy", it is still the most appropriate area for what you're asking.

    You could also try posting in your local area under "Where Am I,, Where are you?" section. I have found a lot of great resources for my local area...and if they can't help you-they may know someone that can
