Out of ten new chicks we got seven months ago, two grew to be roosters (a Silkie and a Light Brahma). They are both sweet and nice with the ladies, but we can't have roosters in our neighborhood. None of the neighbors complained (and two have roosters themselves), but these boys would crow at all hours of the day and night (they are kept in a large coop, but we have a lot of predators). I have been afraid that they would be impounded and destroyed, so I found someone on Craigslist who was looking for a Light Brahma roo. He said he'd take the Silkie too (I wanted them to go together since they were raised together and got along so well). My kids and I are heartbroken because we really loved these guys and they are beautiful. I'm hoping that the guy who took them treats them well. It's funny how attached we can become to these chickens.
