Two Beautiful Buff Orpington Boys Needing a New Home

My Dad (bless his heart) decided to surprise me with two Buff Orpington hens back in August - I had wanted to get two following the loss of my little Flo and Henrietta last year.

He bought them from an auction while I was away visiting my sister leaving him to cat and chicken sit.

Unfortunately Elsie and Ellen have turned out to be Eric and Ernie; they are absolutely gorgeous but sadly due to the neighbours I can't keep them.

I live in Kirton Lindsey near Gainsborough in Lincolnshire. I just want them to go somewhere where they'll live long and happy lives - not end up in someone's dinner plate, which is why I'm asking for help here among like minded chicken mad folk.

I'm going to miss them but here's hoping..

firstly double check that your neighbours really do mind you keeping one.
I was surprised that my neighours actually like the crowing - I just dont let
my chooks out too early am
There is a facebook group called "cockerel trader" for people trying to rehome
cockerels to genuine homes. I joined it to find a new cockerel this year, definitely
worth a try.

Thanks Kitla,
I joined the group you suggested and I think I've found them a good home.
