    I have been trying really hard to find new homes for a couple bearded blue splash silkie roosters, but no luck yet. I have ads in 2 of the country/farm vets in my area, and i have them on CL for VT, NH and MA. I HATE to have to let DH cull them because i love them all. But they are starting to get aggressive and i want them to find homes while they are still good. I am afraid if we dont cull 2 this weekend, we will soon have to cull all 3. I would like to keep one if its not mean. If i handle them often, i think they are good. So does anyone wanna be a foster home? I just dont have enough room for all of them. As long as they are separated, they only need to be handled more. I have had a few people ask about them, but nothing that has panned out. Here is pics of all 3 of them. Its funny because i could never tell them apart all this time.....but now i realize how different they all are. They remind me of the 3 bears.........1 is dark, 1 is light, and 1 is in between. then 1 is big, 1 is small, and one is in between. The one that is crowing is sooooo funny to hear.....one is not yet....and i am not sure about the other. They are just about 6 months old. Thanks for at least reading this. Lurky

    ON THE BRIGHT SIDE: At least i am not wondering if they are boys or girls anymore [​IMG]

    They are awfully pretty. I might be interested in one, having lost almost all my Silkies and all [​IMG].

    I am going to Seabrook NH Sunday. How far are you from there?? Would you be willing to meet me? If not, I totally understand and good luck finding new homes for them.

    Edit... That's a 2 hour drive for you, I can't ask you to drive that far. [​IMG]

    I'm glad you were able to find them a home, Lurky!! [​IMG] Sorry I didn't get back to you, I wasn't ignoring you...lol...I was busy with DD last night (she has a dang cold with a cough [​IMG] )and wasn't home all day today. It's really a long drive for me, especially in winter when the weather is unpredictable, so I'm happy you were able to find someone to take them. [​IMG]

    Quote:Thanks angie. I knew it would be hard for us to hook up too. I spoke to chris on the phone and i quickly realized this guy knew ALOT about birds. I am often accused of loving my birds too much.......well i do believe Mr Chris is worse than me [​IMG] I also gave him 4 silkie eggs to put in his already warm incubator. The story could not have had a better ending.

    Hi Lurky,

    i was off the board for a while so did not realize you ended up with three roosters. Very happy you found good homes for the spares. They are gorgeous. It took me a long time to find homes for all my roosters. For one adoption i drove 3 hours each way to deliver him. i posted on CL and all the local ads many many times. But it all paid off and i'm very happy with everyone who adopted my babies. It's hard, isn't it? But nice to have your flock finally to where you want it.
