3 Hens Seeking Home

Contact Alan –
I’m looking for a good home for three beautiful red-star (red sex-link) hens.  They are three years old but in very good health and still laying enough eggs so that the 3 people in my family (who eat eggs) never need to buy any (about a dozen per week).  They have been free ranged their entire lives in two adjacent Chicago back yards so they are very healthy and happy with no parasites, diseases or issues. Our kids have held them and played with them since they were baby chicks so they are very tame and allow you to pick them up without scratching or pecking. We are moving out of state and cannot take them with us.  If I eat them, I will be the world’s worst father because our kids LOVE them so much.  If you would be willing to give them a good home, please email me at  I would be happy to include all of our remaining feed, hay, etc. as well.
NOTE: If you already have hens, see my post on inserting new birds into an existing flock.
