Village Vancouver

Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities

Hi chicken keepers, we have up to 4 hens to find a new home for. They are all about 2 years old, should still have some laying life ahead of them but only 1 is laying for us right now and we need to get some younger birds to keep us in eggs.
No obvious reason they aren't laying - not moulting or broody, eating layer mash, pretty healthy, no stress from frequent predators or anything. We think it may be that 1 bird is being a bully, so hopefully with a change in enviro/flock, they'll resume.

We have 1 white silkie, 1 buff orpington, 1 rhode island red-type, and 1 barred rock (who is still laying).

We will let them go as a group, in pairs, or indiv. $15 each or $10 each if you take 3 or more. We can deliver them if you live in Van. We are hoping to rehome them rather than see them go in a soup pot, as they are good birds and should still have a few years of egg laying on them.
