Remember that we took up the chicks that our little duck hatched last week? And then I ended up with more creepy meats? Well, we found out that one of our little hens attacked our duck momma - and she (not the duck or the barncats) killed two of the chicks. So that gal got her pink slip, OFG style.
Here is the ad as it ran titled, Free to a BAD Home
One completely loco Golden Campine is available FREE in central Ohio. She is about 4 years old and she has to go - preferably to a bad home.
There has to be someone out there that likes this breed - I do not. The only reason she hasn't gone to glory in a pot of noodles is the crushing guilt that comes from knowing she is on the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy list. There's a reason this breed is dying out - they are the Worst Chickens Ever. See:
Her list of crimes including being flighty, loud, ridiculous, pooping on my husbands motorcycle, and most heinous of all - she picked a fight with my sweet little duck and killed two of the babies.
On the upside, she free ranges like a demon, managed to evade the fox all last summer, and is a good layer.
If you have to drive more than an hour I'll give you $5 in gas. Email me for more info.
I couldn't believe the response I got! Everyone "got the joke" and I received a bunch of fun emails from folks thanking me for the laugh. Honestly I was afraid I would get picketed by PETA or something. But it was all in good fun. And I received several offers for her. The little hen is going to a great farm this weekend and we are thrilled that someone will love having her around.
Once I confirmed the pick up/delivery schedule I edited the ad to say SOLD...and then someone got a bee in their bonnet and yanked the ad. So its not there anymore but I'm glad it worked.
Happy Saturday everyone! Craigslist has a great farm and garden section, is anyone else selling anything?
