Free chickens in North Carolina

Brown eggsDo you live in the Charlotte, North Carolina, area and want some chickens?  Carolina Waterfowl Rescue is trying to find homes for 16,000 organic, brown-egg layers.  The hens are one to two years old and come from a certified chemical-free farm that is being closed down.

This is a great chance to get some pet chickens or to start your laying flock for cheap.  (The organization does request a donation to cover their costs.)  Be forewarned that your adoption application will probably be denied if you are like us and slaughter some of your chickens for meat.  Click here for more information.

Once you get your chickens, be sure to check out our homemade chicken waterers, currently 10% off!
