    This is a last ditch effort to find these boys a flock of their own. We have no use for them and they are eating us out of house and home. Before they are shipped off to freezer camp, we would like to offer them to the BYC community.

    **MAKE OFFER**

    There are 8 adults and 1 youngster. Variety of colors, including tricolor, lilac, and more.

    I will consider trades for laying hens or pullets (chickens, not ducks, lol)

    What color is the drake in the middle picture? Is that considered lilac or ??? I think he's really pretty.

    The one front and center in the middle photo is a tricolor. It's exhibiting the dusky gene and runner pattern. Not sure what the actual color is called. If he had the extended black gene present, I think he would be silver. Can't guarantee that's right.

    Well, I think he's very pretty. If I were closer, I would take him and put him in my mixed pet flock. [​IMG]
