    I have 2 Golden Sebright cockerels and 3 White Silkie cockerels that are in need of good homes. These chickens are from Ideal hatchery, and I received them on Sept. 4 so they are about 15 weeks old now. They are not show quality but look fairly nice as well. I really need to find some good homes for them and quick! The coop is starting to get crowded and I just know someone will start to get in a fight to the death. The sebrights are currently crowing, and surprisingly no fights yet, but I'd rather not wait and find out. As for the silkie, I'm positive they are roosters from their comb sizes, top-knots, and their body size/weight. $10 - $15, pick-up only.

    If you have any question, PM me.

    Thank you!!! [​IMG]

    Even if your males are not used for show, they may be okay for introducing new blood into a flock. Check with "the real silkie chick" who raises bantams in PA.

    Can you separate them until you decide their fate? I had two silver bantam cockerels who just started crowing and jumping on everyone in the bantam coop so I pulled them out and put them in w/the LF ducks since they can fly up to the second and third landings while the ducks stay on the floor area...hope this helps.

    thanks dina for thinking of me and for the offer YOTR, however i don't raise hatchery stock. i got 6 bloodlines in my white silkies so i'm good to go on them. [​IMG] my flock is closed till spring no birds in at all unless i hatch them and i just hatched the last batch which is seramas till spring comes.

    thanks again for thinking of me and i hope u find a home for all ur boys.
