We have eight sweet, gentle and beautiful mixed breed hens we need to find a new hone for. All are laying every 24 hours now in summer. Will split them up if you don't want all.

My neighbor's backyard chickens were attacked and killed by a raccoon, except for one hen he just got this spring. After more than 20 years of raising chickens, he is not going to get more right now, so would like to see her go to a good home with…Continue
