    So now that I am 7 months pregnant, it is getting cool enough to ship, and I am getting short on space, I am REALLY needing to let some birds go but I can't decide who! I breed silkies and showgirls and just can't decide what project to let go! Right now I have (all by pen)

    Lav SG roo over black silkie hens - ALL staying
    Lav SG roo over one lav, and one split hen - they can go after a molt
    Blue/splash pen with a blue sg roo and a blue silkie roo over blue and splash hens
    Porcelain/lav pen with a porcelain roo over lav sg hens, and porcelain hens

    So I am thinking of either getting rid of all or half of the BBS, or porcelains.

    Blacks and lavenders are my two MUST keep colors. What would you do?

    Quote:Well if your willing to get rid of some silkie hens or even show girls, i am willing to take 1-2 of your hands. I'm in CT and if you are willing to sell just let me know how much it would be :]
    can't take any roo's though cuz i already have one and dont have room for another.
