Yountville, CA Silkies in Need of a New Backyard to Call Home

    Hi Napa Valley backyard chicken lovers. I have 3 Silkie girls in need of a new backyard home. My property owner changed and they have asked me to re-home them after 4.5 years. Two of my girls I've had since the day they hatched and are still laying. The 3rd is a little older and was their "broody" mama hen so I am unsure of her age. She only lays every once in awhile so I'm afraid she has reached that henopause age but she continues to be broody and would make a great hatching mom. What Silkies don't provide in egg production they provide in entertainment and bug eating!

    My girls are truly spoiled and are used to lots of human interaction and love. They have always hadfull access to the yard and can get vocal if they are locked up. I have friends who have large size flocks that could adopt them but I'm afraid they would not thrive in that environment with so many chickens. Their custom made bantam sized house is included and I'm willing to offer food and medical expenses for their lives in hopes of finding them a good new home.

    Please contact me if you would like more information or pictures. I am continuing my search for a new rental that would let me keep them so this adoption could be a temporary situation.

    Thanks!

    I don't know if you'd consider it, but I'm sure maybe Connolly Ranch in Napa or Loma Vista Farm in Vallejo would accept them.

    Hi,

    I live in Duval, Washington state on a 5 acre parcel. I have a flock of 11 chickens and a very large 100 by 60 foot pen for roaming. If they still need a home and like being interactive with a family that looks after a flock then ping me.

    Regards
    Kev
