    I have two healthy, laying Sicilian Buttercups to give away in the Seattle metro area.

    There is nothing wrong with them. I just have too many birds for my space and they are not amiable like your typical backyard breed, so they are the ones to go.

    Very pretty birds, but they are standoffish, skittish, and do not like to be held. However, they are good layers, producing 6-7 eggs a week between the two of them.

    They were hatched in April and hand raised in a city backyard with other chickens. They eat layer feed, table scraps, grass, and bugs. They are not overly aggressive or overly timid. They fall in the middle of our pecking order. I would like to keep them together since they are buddies. Their wings are trimmed but they are still quite agile/flighty.

    My friends are telling me to eat them, but as I said they are good layers (med/large white eggs) and I think they are slightly rarer than your usual backyard assortment. If you want to eat them, that is your lookout, but I can't pull that off with my daughters around. [​IMG]

    Great if you want the eggs and some eye candy.

    PM me if you want them! You pick up and please bring a box. We'll catch 'em. Weekends work well for us so we can plan a date/time.

    Beautiful birds!

    I'm sure you could find them a home easily. Try a post on craigslist if you can't find a home through byc. I see active layers going for 15+ in the area!

    Quote:I thought maybe I could sell them, but I have been in kind of a karma mode since New Year's, hee. I have been giving things away that I can spare and it is making people happy, and people have been giving me things as well. [​IMG]

    4hchknmama and I have talked and she is coming to pick them up on Saturday!
