    I desperately want a silkie pullet (I can't have roos) but don't want to go through the trouble of brooding a few straight runs and then rehoming roos. I would gladly buy a started pullet or hen but I'm terrified of diseases. (I know that sexing isn't 100% accurate but I'd be willing to take the smaller risk for a better chance of getting a pullet)

    Any advice? Or does anyone know where I can find sexed silkies?

    Where are you located please? :<)
    I am in the midst of rehoming some and might be able to accomodate you. I can't have roos either so know your pain.[​IMG]

    I know you can't have roos, but I have some silkie cockerels who are the quietest chickens in the world. I've had only one of them crow and it was sooo quiet that it didn't sound like a crow at all.

    Quote:Eventually they will crow and my neighbors won't appreciate it! I also have limited space (backyard chickens...in 2 small coops with decent sized run in between) and I was originally attracted to chooks for their eggs...

    If you have a roo or cockerel that doesn't and never will crow, will go broody and lay me some eggs every now and then I'd be happy to give it a home. [​IMG][​IMG]

    *sigh* If only I had some land...and lived out in the country...

    Hey Tubby, I have some 2 1/2 month olds that you could come and take your chances on picking out a pullet. I'm live just north of lexington.
