    I have 3 silkie roosters that I need to find homes for. I'm in the process of writing up an ad/flyer.

    Can you tell me what good qualities my silkies have? So I know what to tell people if and when they call.

    They were hatched March 20th, 2009 - 12 weeks old/ 3 months

    I'd definitely tell interested buyers about their temperments and how well they act around other people. Pepper seems to have pretty good toe spacing on the one foot I can see. Another good quality I see about him is that he has no off-colors in his hackle feathers. [​IMG] Their all handsome boys!

    Ginger: Young buff cockerel--very even colouring; very good foot feathering; dark mulberry comb; wings nicely closed and held high. (I can't see the toes to comment on them for all the feathering [​IMG] )

    Pepper: young black cockerel--black comb; wings nicely closed and held high; toes well spaced and separated.

    Dixie: young blue partridge cockerel--mulberry comb & skin; wings nicely closed and held high; toes well spaced and separated.

    Thank you so much! [​IMG]

    I bought some silkie eggs from a BYCer and let my broody hen hatch them. Out of 6 eggs 4 hatched and 3 of them are boys!

    We are not allowed to have roosters here so, I have to find homes for all of them.

    I'm so sad [​IMG] .
    At least I can keep Pixie - unless she suddenly turns into a boy.
