Probably. There is an ad up at the local co-op so may eventually get a call. The co-op still has chicks from Mt. Healthy in big bins, but I don't care for their birds. I've seen their Buff Orps and NHs and their "ameraucana/araucanas". (big eyeroll).
The guy who bought the other three males said his friend wants the pair, but I sort of suspect he is the "friend", though I could be wrong. I had told him that since he didn't want more than 20 birds, I cautioned him against having too many males to females, that the hens could be hurt or even killed by over-mating. So, I hesitate to send the little gal off with him, but we'll see. I think with my husband in crisis, I seriously do not need them (and really dont need Athena. She could go with them, I suppose)

I messed up his feathers here, sorry.
The little gal with him.
Athena is fairly wide.
Tessa has plucked herself. I fear she's going broody for the first time. Sigh.
It always thrills me when I see the first wing bars!
