My washer/dryer are in my garage and he would flog me when I turned my head. Had to fight with the booger with a broom! He was fearless! Little turd bird. Imagine going to garage to feed them, and they are gone. In thin air. Just disappeared. My garage is the ground floor of my house and I have a garage door opener (can't be opened manually) and I have a burglar alarm. Ya know...my BCM's are down there now. Yikes! Hadn't thought about that! Ugh. At $10.00 each for day old chicks, I best get their outside coup fixed asap! These are your future BCM's parents too! Lol.
The dye was only on their fuzzy down. They always feathered out white. They were cute but many suffered no doubt.
I'm not sure what color they are! I know two will be some kind of blue, one is black, and the rest are "white", but I don't think they'll all stay pure white.
When they get older I'll probably give you one if you want
I'm not selling them but I'd give them to a friend.
That's scary! How could they get out? That makes no sense! I don't have a "coop", I use an old shed (completely predator proof and ventilation), it has wire and tposts around it, I have a little coop/run thing for my three grown silkies (we call it silkie settlement lol), and any "extra" birds are down free trading at the barn.
Oh so one of the brahma roos that was missing showed up after the dog problem was solved. He is beat up but going to make it. I need to investigate further, I'm pretty sure he has a puncture wound. I am not sorry the dog is gone at all. And a little game hen showed back up too, she's missing tail feathers but seems to be okay.
