    Chestnut needs a new home! This little guy hatched in April of this year. He is 3/4 Partridge Silkie and 1/4 Sicilian Buttercup. His mother was a purebred Partridge silkie and his father was a Sicilian Buttercup X Partridge Silkie cross. He's fairly small, about average silkie height.

    Right now I've just got too many roosters, and Chestnut seemed the best candidate for re-homing. He's fairly skittish when approached and initially picked up or handled, but once he's being held he calms down immediately and becomes very docile. He has never shown any aggression to people and doesn't really fight with the other roosters.

    He's a great little bird and needs to go to a home where he will NOT be killed for food. (He's too small anyway.)

    I will NOT ship him, but I can arrange either a pick up, drop off (within reasonable distance) or a half-way meet in either the Janesville or Edgerton area of Wisconsin.


    I would be happy to answer any questions concerning Chestnut here or in a PM/email.

    He looks and sounds so similar to my mystery rooster. Except mine has a regular single comb. Very skittish, yet as calm as can be when held. Here is a picture of him next to my golden comet. He doesnt crow like any other rooster. He Raaaaaaaaaars!

    Do you live near or in South west Wisconsin? If so, I would love to take him off your hands.

    Quote:I live in Southern Wisconsin in the Janesville/Edgerton area. If that's a bit too far, I could arrange a halfway drop off.
