    Hello, I have 6 hens and one is not laying eggs. She is one year old and I would like to give her away. What is the best way to advertise this? I already tried Craigslist.
    I live in San Jose, CA.

    You could also try listing it on BYC.
    Any why are all the free birds in California? JK

    Thanks for the responses. Three people responded to my add in Craigslist. The first one already has RIR in her large lot in Los Gatos, so my hen is going to bigger and better pastures. She is gone already.
