Single 5yr old Bluebell needs a retirement home

Post by EasyG »

Hi all,

I have a single Bluebell who is 5 years old. Her last friend died a few months ago and I don't like the thought of her being on her own as I don't intend on getting any more chickens.

I would love to find her a new home for her final years. She still lays, but only a few times a week, has always had a large covered run to play in and is still very inquisitive and lively.

I am in Bristol if anyone close is interested. I don't want anything for her and will even delivery her to you as long as your not too far away.

Anyone interested please message me.

EasyG

Sorry but I don't want your Bluebell but I have a chicken living on her own and she is as happy as Larry. When I moved 21 months ago I had 3, 2 passed on and I was concerned as to whether Bertha would live on her own....no problems.

Thanks grannyof4, appreciate that. I have kept chickens for over 10 years now and never had one on her own.

Do you think she would integrate with a skittish leghorn and a buff orpington? It is hard to seperate at the moment but if we cold try. PM me where you are in Bristol I am in Little Stoke

Hope she is not causing too much trouble! Thanks so much for having her, we are happy that she is no longer on her own and is going to have a lovely retirement.
