    There are three blue and one black cockerel then my one black pullet, Delilah, all turning 9 weeks old. Oh, and the Splash boy. All are available for sale, except the splash and Delilah. Hey, KingsCalls, look at that black cockerel! If I had enough girls, I'd keep that one-he's going to be a looker!

    I don't envy you with all them roos. what are your plans for them.

    I'm in the same boat though I got about 4 boys in the brooder that will eventually need a homes.

    I just put them on Craigslist and another farm classifieds and in a flyer at one of the feedstores. If the other feedstore owner ever gets a space in her cages, I may take them there, but people here have no idea what a Blue Orpington is. When I advertise them, I put up a pic of Suede so they can see what these could be. Same old thing, though-finding homes for the boys when you hatch. I'll have a ton of them in a couple of months to rehome, then I dont plan to hatch for a very long time.

    That's a good advertising tactic, Cyn--showing a picture of Suede. I would expect that will help a lot in getting your guys placed! The boys are at a really cute age now too!

    Cyn, you have again produced some really nice cockerals. If I had the other rooms in my barn ready I would come get at least one! For now I have to wait for your eggs!

    I have been wanting to get some pullets as everytime I get eggs hatched they all end up being males. The last set that hatched 2 males and the one male is blind [​IMG] . I am keeping the blind chicken, as he has been hand raised and needs TLC, but will be re-homing the other when he starts to crow.

    Today I hit pay dirt [​IMG] . The lady who took my 3 male silkies 2 months ago has pullets for sale and she is going to GIVE me my choice as to what I want. I get to pick them up tomarrow. I am so excited I just had to tell someone. [​IMG]

    Thank you for listening,
