    Hi guys,

    After much thought and hard decisions-I have decided to down size my flock now. I just hatched out 19 babies last week and have 37 more eggs in bator. In order for my DH to agree to let me hatch out even more of what I want to concentrate on-I have to get rid of some. Which is hard- but I understand..I will be posting on Craigslist to but I thought I would offer them up here for 7 days first then turn to Craigslist.

    I have 3 WC black polish girls 9 months old-all laying ( they are in a breeder pen with a frizzled birchen cochin-I do have 1 more order for their eggs to fill before I can let them go-great girls very easy to handle-...
    15$ each or 40$ for all 3 [​IMG] this was when they were 4 months old.

    I have 2 EE's that lay pinkish brown eggs-I was so hoping for pink pink eggs but not with these girl:-( again they are 9 months old and lay everyday. you can see both of them in this picture. Ignore my SL polish in there he had to have a serious haircut because he couldnt see a thing! I hope it grows back soon -his tophat is gorgeous!
    13$ each [​IMG]

    I have a white silkie roo -10 months old-great feathering one fault redness in comb and wattles:-( big top notch though and fully feathered to toes. I have no mates for him...I hatched him too-10$ Pet not SQ

    I have a bearded buff silkie roo. I have no mates for him either-he is 10 months old too sweet as pie and loves to be held-I did trim his top notch because it was so big he couldnt see and its just now coming back in..his is very fluffy.Pet not SQ
    10$ [​IMG]
    white and buff together [​IMG]

    I also have that Frizzled birchen cochin roo 9 months old-I hate to part with him but I need to make room-he is is that pen with the WC polish girls [​IMG]
    15$


    I also have numerous cochin chicks-I just hatch out last weekend

    Thanks guys:-(

    Quote:I know-it kills me to do it since it took me a year to get that frizzle but I have a frizzle girl too and will use her for that if needed:-( I got the girls when I had other polish boys-then my puppy got a hold of my favorite and it died. SO I held onto the WC polish-they are too small for all my large breeds to mate with-I have alot of egg eating customers and Id like to stick with large fowl and expand on that right now-they are so much easier to take care of. The frizzle "pannini" was a solo hatch-he thinks he is the king of the coops and what terd-but loves his belly rubbed...Id like them all to go together but thats a fat chance there too...If they dont get sold on here or through craigslist-I will re-think everything and put them back into the future flock in a way. IDK...I like fat fluffy layers and multi colored eggs-that is my goal for summer... :-( sigh...

    Sorry Nat! I KNOW it must be hard for you to part w/ Pannini. Boy have his sizzle feathers come in NICELY! He looks GREAT!

    Good luck to you... I know how it is [​IMG]

    Very hard-the polish girls are gone now and he is roaming freely back with the flock but the girl wont let him get near them:-( SO he hides out on a ladder and looks so sad I hate it...Unless I have a customer who is willing to let him be the lead man hes mine forever:)
