Hello, I am requesting more info. about your program. How long do you “estimate” the hens will be reasonable egg layers? Is there a limit to number of adaptees? Are any health vaccinations needed? Do they need to be reported to Larimer County or City of Fort Collins? Besides using chickens for egglayers are there requirments for those adopting hens? Can you sell their eggs? If they get loose will the humane society help me to locate them?
I would like to adopt 6 chickens, please let me know what I need to do?
