    I like the idea of having the swap a little later in the morning. Anyone having to drive any distance at all doesn't have to get up at an unsavory hour and leave in the dark.
    BTW, any info about the Silkies? Color, age, sex?
  5. Chicken Junkies

    Chicken Junkies Chillin' With My Peeps

    One lady is bringing Partridge/Blue Partridge chicks. Another is bringing some blue and black started Silkies. No idea on sex. There will be some Silkie/Cochin mixes at the swap too. Just got an email that Bantam Cochins are coming. Possibly some Peacocks too.
  6. Chicken Junkies
