    Where is the fellow BYCer located? I have a beautiful pair of 2-month-old younglings I am trying to rehome and would like to keep them together. They are an EE/delaware cross. This pairing has produced beautiful chickens before, and the lady that has them (gryeyes--also a fellow BYCer) has two of the daughters & they both lay pretty minty-green eggs! They are mostly white with small pea combs. I have a male/female pair. I can get pics uploaded this evening.

    I'm in northern California/Sierra foothills if the person in need of chickies is close-by and is interested in these chicks.

    I don't really have much of a preference breed-wise. Though some of my faves that are gone were; blue silkie, white cochin, bared rock bantie roo, blrw, ees, all three of my spotted california whites, and all but 1 of my RIR pullets are gone. Got to head to work...will be at the house adding hardware cloth, wont be back until late.

    You guys have been really great with the help. [​IMG]

    Thanks you guys. I'll be waiting until next year's TSC chicks come in. Will try again with the gold comets, caramels and the rir pullets. But I am still looking for the Spotted California chicks. TSC had them, all the ones I see elsewhere are solid white. My 3 I got from them, 2 had the black in them as juvies before they were eaten...

    I've got a few Roosters, free for locals to pick up. Not as many as I had before, but just 2 or 3 that need to go.
