Hen Looking for Home Update: A Home Has Been Found!!

12/16/21 UPDATE: Isa has a new home!!


Isa the brown hen

Name: Isa
Age/Breed: ~1 year, 7 month old Isa Brown Hen
Description: Spunky and healthy Isa Brown hen that’s a reliable, daily layer.
Location: Chicago, south side
Reason for Re-homing: Our small organization just lost our other hen (a Plymouth Blue Rock) who had persistent health issues with laying for a long time. We are a nonprofit organization that doesn’t have the staffing or space to take other chicks/hens at this time of year. We know that a single hen is not a happy hen… and are concerned about keeping her warm enough through the coldest parts of winter all by herself. We have feed and other supplies.
