I have 10 chickens to give away to GOOD HOMES. I hatched them(not me personally but with incubator!) Feb 2012. They were from a selection of non related eggs. Some big some little bantams, inc. light Sussex, Pekins etc. I have kept chickens for the past 10 years and time have come to stop now the kids have grown up. As you can understand, we would like them to go to good homes. I am based in Kent, near Sevenoaks. Collection with own box please.

That's a lovely offer. Are they all layers? We currently have 1 and are aiming to get another two shortly. Would you be happy to break up the group?

Hi, I am happy to break them up if they are going to a loving home. Yes, the hens were laying but not as many as they are not commercial layers. Also they don't lay as much because in winter the days are shorter and hens do need lights to lay. They are all different with individual temperaments.I am sad to see them go.

Can I be cheeky and ask for a couple of photos? I have promised my DD and DS they can pick our next ones. Shall I PM you?

Hi happy- could I pass your details on to my sister please? She is in Sevenoaks and has 2 Light Sussex and all the set up for a couple more. She would be very grateful I'm sure to be able to home some.
