    I never wanted roos, yet I seem to have a knack for ending up with them. I have two gorgeous and sweet George Mihalik Silkies, whom I love! But they both crow morning, noon, and night and it is driving me crazy (I work nights). I can keep them relatively quiet if I keep them in the coop, but as soon as they are out they start up. It's killing me, and though the neighbours have not complained, it must be driving them nuts,too (we live in the city for crissakes!).

    Just about to post on the buy/sell/trade....[​IMG]

    I ordered a straight run of Silkies from McMurray this past June and ended up with three roos. [​IMG] All three of them were mean to my girls and would try to out crow each other. I tried for four months to give them away but no one would take them. Finally, I had to take care of my roo problem myself... I hope you have better luck getting rid of your Silkies then I did.
