    Im trying to thin down the herd to get ready for hatching season. I have 4 cocks and 4 hens to choose from. Winning bid gets to choose 1 male and 1 female.

    Thanks for looking.

    Here's some better shots of the two cockerels

    and #3

    These are both going to be super handsome boys! Im sure they will be head turners even if they aren't perfect for MF. Im having a difficult time parting with cockerel #3. He is just striking but, I can't keep them all. I am having major sleeplessness thinking about parting with more of the girls [​IMG] I just can't do it right now... once I have my first batch of eggs in the bator, there are two that can head down the road... but not yet so, if anyone whom is bidding is upset by me not posting two more girls, I will not hold you to the bid...

    I cannot do two pairs in the same box but, I can do three birds. If the winning bidder would like an extra roo, I can toss one in for and extra $10 shipping cost.

    You always have the swap you can sell them at on the ones you can't let go of now. [​IMG]

    Hey Fattie, I have more boys than girls so, Im only selling pairs. Highest bidder gets their first pick. Then, I'll have one more pair and additionaly boys.
