    I will be in Houston 2/12 if someone wants to meet me for pick-up - Otherwise I am located in Bridge City (77611.) I am willing to ship if someone wants them bad enough.
    Here's all I have left:
    - 10 wk old pair of Barred Rocks $12
    - Light Brahma Pullet $10
    - 1 Guinea (Summer '07 hatch) $8
    - 1 White Call Drake $12.50
    - 4 Pekin Drakes $5/each
    All I'm keeping for myself (due to moving) is a quad of Rouens, a pigeon (who thinks it's a chicken) and my broody araucanaX Caroline. [​IMG] I'll have to start all over again.

    Kristi,
    I have a friend that is very interested in your Trio of Barred Rocks. Wendi is just starting out and wants laying hens. She is like me, not really interested in breeding, just wants fresh yard eggs. Please email me back or you can send info directly to Wendi @ [email protected] Maybe you have some "mutt" layers that you want to sale also?
    Thanks, Dana

    Sorry guys...didn't realize I had replies [​IMG]
    Ok...as far as the trio, no one has claimed it yet, but SADLY it is now a pair...one of the girls walked in w/my dogs (the ONE of my 5 that eats chickens) (I do have another who is preferential to ducks, but anyhow) and so now it's a pair...I'll take $12 for the pair...maybe less if something else is bought.

    As far as the Lt. B, she is a standard, and her DOB is 10/24. She was 1 of a trio I hatched...that the other 2 were also (like the BR above) dumb enough to walk into the dogs pen & meet their demise [​IMG]

    Gosh...I just can't wait for the new house where the 'bird-un-friendly' dogs NEVER have to be around the birds to be able to eat them....

    Oh, and I do have one mixed breed chick, who is about 2 -3 wks old or so and I have no idea of her definate sex, but think she's a girl....if your friend would be interested in her. She was hatched by my broody.

    What color is your guinea? I have two, but started out with three. The hubby says they're nearly as obnoxious as the geese we had, but at least they don't squawk all the time. I'm looking to sell a few birds this weekend and could get it from you. I don't think he'd notice adding one bird. [​IMG]

    It's the blue/purple...not lavender color. I'm no guinea expert. It's been raised to *firmly* believe it IS a barred rock chicken. It's pretty quiet for a guinea, actually. Only makes noise when the 'neighboorhood hawk' flies by, to warn everyone else to run into the barn.
    It's the most common color I am used to seeing, if that helps at all. Sorry I can't be more specific. I have handled it alot since I got it, so it is alot more tame thatn many I have seen, although I wouldn't call it 'tame', as it *is* a guinea [​IMG]

    It's probably a pearl then. If it were any other special color, you'd be able to tell. Mine think their BLRW, but I'm beginning to believe they think they are boss of everyone. [​IMG] I'll get back with you later on today.

    -- #1--(Possibly as early as 9 a.m. but I am hoping MUCH later...will find out Monday an exact time)
    Long Drive Dog & Cat Hospital

    -- #2 (From 7:30-9p.m.)
    Los Tios (may be Trios?) Mexican Restaurant

    Either place is fine with me to meet, I will have whatever birds are being placed & my great dane with me.
