    Just found out we are having too move and need to rehome some hens as we will not have as much space in our new home. Got 2 Barnvelders 2 years old and 2 vorwerks nine months old and an aracana 18 months old and possibly a goldtop. I am trying to find them homes locally but if not possible would you be able to take them they are all good health hens laying every day and very friendly. I know that you are a distance away but we are willing to travel to bring them to you in the hope you can find them a good home.

    we offer homes to unwanted or homeless chickens cockerels ducks geese on our 10 acre farm whilst we rehome many of them. pure bred stock unwanted by previous owners often found new homes with enthusiasts and keepers. so far over 300 birds living new lives throughout the uk. anything considered happy to discuss any proposal we are in the midlands between coventry and leicester

    Hi Beegal,
    Our lovely boy, Edward was hatched 2 March 2010 and is a much loved part of our family ever since. He has fathered some beautiful looking chicks too. However over the past few months he has been increasingly agressive to our hens and has been taking chunks out of their combs when mating with them. The girls are becoming quite distressed and as he is absolutely HUGE compared to them, we are worried for their welfare. Can you help? We don't mind travelling to your farm as we are about an hour away. We are on the border between Beds, North Bucks and Northants.

    The result of a well hidden clutch last October which turned out to be all boys.

    Beautiful free range birds, very glossy but I'm afraid that my poor girls are suffering as a result of their enthusiastic attention. Please advise if you can help or know of anyone nearer to Hereford who may be interested in one or more.

    I found this site whilst browsing and it's an excellent advice opportunity. I don't keep poultry myself but my daughter does, which brings me to a question. What would be the chances of re-homing 2 large white (Aylesbury?) males. She has white call ducks and a rescued female but these two males are making life a bit cramped and difficult. She is very fond of them and doesn't want them to end up on somebody's table. They are just a year old. Any advice gratefully accepted

    Hello Beegal. I wonder if you are still rehoming poultry? I see your message was dated 2008... We are looking for a home for several hybrid cockerels, and as you might imagine, we are not overwhelmed with people wanting to take them! Could you let me know if you are still taking on unwanted birds? Or, if not, whether you know of anyone else who is?
    Thanks.

    Just like the heart and the lungs and the stomach, the skin is by definition an organ. Of all of the organs in mammals, the skin is by far the largest. This is why people with deep, massive burns are often not expected to live. A bodily organ is a collection of tissues that are structurally joined for a purpose. The skin is a marvelous model of indispensable function.

    Hi Alan,

    Sent you a PM yesterday.

    I have 5 bantam chicks that are being bullied by my resident ex-battery hens. I've been able to keep them separate so far but this morning one of them has escaped from the smaller pen and has had a rather nasty run in with the big girls.

    Really hoping you can help - or advise me of who may be able to.

    Im in west midlands but prepared to travel to find them somewhere to live.

    Thanks

    Kellie

    Hi Alan

    I have a 9 week old cockerel bantam Im not too sure of the breed (can supply picture) but he is a reddy brown colour.

    He is very friendly to humans and his 3 other sisters and mum. So could easily be rehomed to a flock of girls or a small group. The person we got him off had him in a small outbuilding and we have him now outside in a chicken coop and a 3m by 2m run, he has adapted to the change very well.

    Ive been reading all of the great replies from people and would like to have him rehomed to you if at all possible.

    Im in Cambridge and could easily drive to Leicester/Coventy.

    Hope to speak soon

    I am looking for a smooth feathered chamois male poland. I have two championship show winning girls and no non-related gentleman with which to breed next season.

    Have you got a boy who needs a home? If so please email me at gerbil_ears@hotmail.co.uk

    I am located in Cheshire.

    Must be chamois and NOT frizzle, well laced, a deep buff in colour especially not pale in the crest, and with little or no comb (ie, show standards not an ebay hybrid colour - I already have too many pet polands with funky colours!)
