    Sure.. I need to downsize, I don't have enough room for all of the cockerels, as much as I love them. DH says keep one... the others go.

    The red cochin chicks were a bit of a surprise. We had a pet sitter while away that didn't collect all the eggs. I had one hen on a few that I wanted and she was stealing some of the other's eggs. I didn't want to throw out any and 13 hatched. I will be keeping some of them.

    I have had chickens for 7 years and after having different breeds had decided a while back I might just stick with cochins so that is why I might be finding homes for the rest of the silkies.

    The japs, if not taken, were left at the feed store with the silkies and had pasty butt, and I just couldn't leave them there. I learned after that day to not "just look at the chicks" when I went in for feed.

    They are all healthy, just need a new home.

    Thanks for inquiring and to others...Thanks for the emails.

    cricketsilkies,
    If gas wasn't so stinking high I'd come down and pick some of them up. Where are you from Hays? My husband's grandma is in the hospital there.
