    I have a beautiful silkie rooster that needs a new home. Unfortunately, the chicks were not sexed when I got them, and my area is not zoned for roosters. This will leave my hen all alone, so I'm willing to trade if you have silkie hens that you're willing to part with. I am in the SF Bay Area, CA. Thank you!

    He's a bit big for shipping. I would prefer someone local so transport is not too stressful for him

    I'm an NPIP Silkie breeder and ship adult birds all the time. You sure he is pure Silkie? He should only weigh around 3 pounds.
