We are looking to find homes for about 10 or 12 of our older ladies. This past summer we got chicks and they have now grown up. Unfortunately, the two groups have not gotten along well when we have tried to mix them, so we have decided it is best to not do so. The chickens will go on a first come basis. They will need to be picked up around dusk. Trying to chase them down during the day is to much work for this old man. Call me at the store (717)574-0092 to make arrangements, as I am not good at Facebook messaging. I'm to much of an old fart. Ted
