Welcome to Animal Place’s Adoptable Chicken Page
Adoption times are by appointment only. Please do not show up without an appointment.
Our facilities are located in Grass Valley (Sierra Foothills) and Vacaville, both in California. For the most part, adopters are expected to pick up hens at one of these locations. When possible, we set up adoption events in northern California and rarely in southern California.
