Hi All, I wanted to see if anyone here near south central PA wouldn't mind increasing their flock by 3. Someone dumped 3 chicks (I'm guessing they were Easter "presents" that got too big) at the park behind my house. So, I took them in, because it was too cold and dangerous for them outside, and have had them inside in a large tub for a week now. I can not keep them due to city regs, plus I know nothing about raising chickens. I'm don't know the sex of any of them or the breed. They are getting all their feathers in and they are a mix of cream, light tan, and ochre colored.  Please contact me if anyone close would like to add them to their flock. Thanks for looking!

Your lucky it's chickens. All I get are cats dumped off near my farm.
I wish I was closer I'd take them off your hands.

Thanks Phil, appreciate that! Sorry to hear people dump cats on your property, I wish none of us had to deal with irresponsible people's discarded pets.

The peeps just left to their new home where they will have plenty of acres to free-range. I'm very glad we were able to get them to someone that is knows how to raise chickens and was happy to take them!
