I have sold my rogue hen and her 9 chicks which she hatched in the hedge within 24 hours of advertising them locally. I only asked £25 for them, and the couple snapped them up....but I'm very pleased as I had decided that they would only go to somebody who I thought would look after them well. This couple fitted the bill perfectly.
Though they hadn't got a lot of experience of poultry care,they were very interested in the welfare of the hen and the chicks and took the names of wormers,lice treatment etc .I gave them some DE and chick crumb as starters. They also have 23 acres, a very nice house and outbuildings etc....but I was influenced only by the fact that they stroked my very friendly sheep,stinky dog,cats and very protective and pecky momma hen. They invited to come and see momma hen and chicks whenever we were in the area.
So....outcome....one happy couple and OH has quit moaning.
