    I have one free Crevecoeur Cockerel on the Central Coast of California. I sold him as a her, and the owner can't find a home for him, so he's free for whoever wants him. I can ship for a flat rate of $50. He's about 6 months old. Gorgeous boy, with full crest, muffs, and beard. Awesome addition to any flock. Email me, pm me, post, whatever. He's got to go soon!

    Edited to add: Apperantly I have a friend who has a splash silkie cockerel as well. She is located in Goleta. He is free as well. If you are interested, please contact me for her #. Thanks!

    It's a little difficult in this area. I had no problems getting rid of "her", but I'm worried about "him". I can't keep him for very long because I live in the city and do not have my roo coops set up yet, but I'm posting locally as well. Thanks okie. I am planning on breeding them. I have one hen that won Best of Show a while back. That was awesome. I'm ordering 2 dozen eggs in about a month as well. By then we'll have "roo proofed" our coops.

    If you want to keep him you can always bring him in at night. I bring my EE Roo in every night and stick him in a 44 gallon trashcan. I have about a foot of hay in the bottom, just put a fresh hay layer on every other night or so and dump it once a week or whatever you like. Just make sure to put some holes in the barrel not just the lid. I use the lid upside down. Having it upside down makes air flow alot easier and keeps him from jumping.

    But the thing is, I don't want to keep him. I breed crevecoeurs, and he is not show quality, he has WAY too much white in his wings. He is an absolute sweetheart though for those who are interested.
