    I am selling my Platinum Sumatra cockerel, he is 9 months old.

    Platinum is the result of the dilution of the color Black by the Blue gene and the Dun gene. When bred to Black birds this cockerel will sire Platinum, Dun, Blue and Black offspring.

    Bidding will start at $50, bids can be made in $1 increments and must be posted as replies to this thread.

    This listing will close on Sunday March 11th at 12:00 Noon, Pacific Standard time.

    Payment may be sent via PayPal.

    I can ship this bird. Payment in full along with a shipping fee of $60 must be sent at the end of the auction. I plan on shipping the bird Monday March 12th to the winning bidder. $60 is an estimate on how much the shipping costs will be, when shipped if there are any funds left over they will be returned to you.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask.

    Thanks Roger!

    I've got a brooder full of chicks sired by him, I plan on continuing my project and outcrossing to another line of Sumatras now.

    This is one of his babies, a very dark Dun chick.

    There are bantam Sumatras, in Blue and Black. I don't think some of the rarer colors exist in bantam though.

    You could use this cockerel to breed bantams, he is not overly large and could probably be put over some bantam females.
