& Rooster Care:
There comes a time in a chicken’s life when she will stop laying. For some people, this is not an issue and their girl can live out her life as a pet. For others, this does not make sense or space is tight and new layers are needed. Let us take the stress out of making this flock change.
We will arrange pick up and processing of your birds. Owners can either choose to have the meat returned to them, or donate the meat to a family in need of a meal.
We ensure that each bird will be handled in a calm and respectful manner, honoring that bird’s life with the gratitude of the many gifts she offered. Same service offered for unwanted Roosters.
$45.00 for the first bird, $20 each addtl.
(includes pick up and delivery)
