Looking for a GREAT home for my hens

We are moving out of state and are SO sad not to be able to take our well loved hens with us... I'm looking for a GREAT home, not an ok home, or even a good home, but a GREAT home for our girls. We got our White Leghorn, (Snowy) and Rhode Island Red (Feathers) over a year ago as chicks. They are both awesome layers! Snowy is a machine, laying pretty much everyday; I think she took 3 days off to molt:) We got our two Ameraucana hens (Pickle & Dill) a few months after that and they have been…See More

Everyday she has become more insistent about wanting to lay on the nest and therefore not wanting to get off her nest, she puffs herself up and hisses. I'm…See More

Is there any food that I can plant that my free range ducks and chickens won't eat??

I have a fenced garden, but I have another spot in the backyard that I would like to plant in. The problem is my free range hens seems to eat everything. It's not worth fencing this new area off so I could only plant something that would be left undisturbed. I was thinking maybe sweet potatoes or peanuts. Honestly, I would plant and enjoy eating almost anything that doesn't have to be fenced in. Does anyone have ANY suggestions.
