    I found a good solution! I contacted a breeder close to me, the same time I made my post, and told him what was going on. I actually bought two of his silkies (in a different color) to replace these two specific ones I sold. He said he has no one in quarantine and will take both of them and give them a forever home! I know he's good with bio security too because we had to meet in a parking lot for the sale. He wouldn't come on my property or let me on his. So the previous owner is meeting me and I'm driving them to meet their new owner! Thank you guys for all the advice. I was so torn. Sounds like it will all work out.

    I'm a narcissist, so I assume you are speaking to me. You will have to be a little more specific. Which quote?

    It was on the buyers to build a quarantine pen and do gradual introductions. When people drop birds off here, which they do with amazing frequency, I let them know straight up that I will try to rehome them but that they won't be integrated into my flock because they would not survive. Now if they are exceptional birds, after quarantine I can introduce them to the turkeys, who are much better with accepting new chickens than chickens are, and if I have new turkeys to introduce, I introduce them to chickens. Once they are good in the cross-species group I can mingle them.

    Suggest Craigslist.

    It's against ordinance to raise poultry where I live. I had a very expensive 2 1/2 year long court battle to prove I had the right to do so. So people who bought a few chickens and kept them in their backyards then got caught with keeping them have a hard time rehoming them. I have buyers who pick them up and take them to auction or slaughter. They never have to leave my porch. I've also rescued a few turkeys, but only one has ever been worth the effort and expense.

    We were at a fishing cottage in Texas and heard a knock on the door at breakfast time.
