    Its 9 weeks old and already has a large, red comb. Also, he's growing the typical rust colored wing bars through the red on his wings.

    Where are you located in FL??? If I could get him to you, would you take him? My family lives there.

    Ehhhh, I still haven't told my wife we have Silkies in the brooder.... :fl

    However, if she where to divorce me, I could fit more birds in here... Sure, I'll take him.
    :gig
    All jokes aside, I live in Longwood, and yes, if he makes down here I will give him a happy home. Shoot me private message to exchange information if Longwood works for you.
    :highfive:

    @HappyHandsHomestead Just an fyi, I am actively looking for a rooster. Please let me know if the fella from above is going to work out. If so I will wait a bit, but if not I'm going to continue searching for the right fella to bring home. :)

    That is hilarious! I always say that if my husband moved into our workshop, I could fit three more dogs in the house:) haha
    Longwood is close enough to my mom, who lives in South Daytona for one more week. I am going to follow up with another couple of interested people, and if they don’t pan out, I just might make the trip down. Thank you!

    I will PM you over the weekend. Any chance you’d be willing to wait a couple weeks if it took that long to get down there?

    Haha! I told my wife I was going to charge her rent for her half of the bed. When I got the "WHAT?!?" look my answer was "It's nothing personal, just chicken math hun." I cooked my own dinner that night. ;)
    Yeah waiting a couple of weeks is okay. Also, if there is somebody easier to reach, I would completely understand him going to them. I would happily give him a home as a pet, but there are in no way shortages of roosters around here. Maybe not as hansom as your EE fella though. ;)

    Shhh, don't tell my wife :oops:, but I'm going to go look at a game roster today. He's about 30 minutes away, and has won a couple 1st place shows. I'm not interested in showing birds/animals, but is hard to deny the beauty of a conformation quality animal.

    That's how I got suckered in to getting our Silkies. I went to see a show breeder, was offered a very hansom discount, and boom. We got 2 Silkies.

    This is Flip and Flop after my Florida based farmers tan lol.
