I would be interested in the three birds-I live in Laveen and have a little over an acre where I partially free range my small mixed flock-they have a coop at night so they're safe. I currently have 7 teenage hens (4 american…"
I have a few too many birds at the moment (way more than expected hatched from my batch of Trader Joes eggs) and I'm looking to rehome three of them.

I'm not quite up to the minimum number, so does anyone want to pick up a few rare birds? They have true Swedish Flowers, as well as a bunch of other hard to find breeds available. Check out their website and let me know if you want to add to my order.See More
"I don't have any experience with the type of injury your chicken has, but one of our hens did have a severe injury to both of her feet about 5 weeks ago. Her feet were pinned under the frame of the chicken coop when we moved it. They were badly…"
