buff catalana babies

and many more

communal bath - mixed flock :) love them all

blue andalusian (blue) and 3 more (2 black and 1 splash)
Hi! You have beautiful looking birds, but what a lot of roos! Unfortunately, there is often an overabundance of roosters, so placing in a home as opposed to a freezer can be difficult.

A friendly hint: BYC would like sale posts to be in the buy-sell-trade section of "Forums" on the menu bar. There is a special section there for free rehoming also. (Don't be surprised if a moderator contacts you about this.)
