Here is the deal, daughter and her cousin were sold a trio of so called Silkie chicks last year. Turned out the deal was a bit sketchy and the chicks were very poor quality, 4 toes, more white skinned than black, but have silk feathers. Anyway now they have hatched some (6-8) chicks from these mutts and don't want to sell or give them away. The roo from the trio is a nut case and if he weighed more than 2 lb or could fly higher than the top of a rubber boot he would be a danger. They hens are very poor layers to the point of totally quitting recently and have not been able to stay focused on brooding more than a day or two. I would like to get rid of them, the other chickens won't accept them so they need their own area which cuts into space for layers. On top of that they are near useless for egg laying, useless for brooding, Roo is a major PITA and attacks every time without fail. I don't even think it is fair to sell the chicks even with disclosure that they are very far from breed. I would be happy to give the chicks away and stew the trio, but how do you sell that idea to a couple young owners. I would not mind if they wanted to keep a couple breed quality chickens to hatch and sell some chicks but these mutts are bugging me. Not like we are short of chickens either... Ideas?
