    I ended up with WAY too many chicks, wanted 6 to hatch ended up with 12, then 2 hens hatched another 8 so now I have 20!!!

    I have 6 looking for homes, 2 weeks old. Eggs are from silkies, in the pen are 2 silkie roos and a sizzle roo so chicks may not be pure but so far they do look like silkie feathering coming in. All are blacks/greys.

    Need to find new homes ASAP!!! FREE!!!

    Also have 2 month old white silkie pair need to go for free- one is for sure a roo, IDK about the other.

    Also will be giving up the hen's babies in a couple weeks if you want them.

    and finally... I have a momma sitting on 12 eggs- if you want to take them and finish them you can!!

    [​IMG] this is what happens when you start a new job and forget to collect eggs... and the darn things are egg-sitting crazy!!!

    I am around all weekend for pickup. I am about 45 min north of San Francisco.

    I still have them all! IDK if you are close enough, but I am around this afternoon if you want to come get them, or we can try to find another time this week in the evenings. I work 9-10 hr days so I'm normally not around until at least after 6pm. Which ones do you want? The 2 older ones and the 2 week olds can go now, the others I have to wait a bit before mom will let me take them. the 2 week olds are super friendly, been living in my room getting lots of attention.

    I have been wanting silkies!!! I got a few and my **** cat ate them!

    I am expecting 2 ducks and 2 geese at the end of the month, so I have the nursery cat-proofed this time. I would love to take a couple. I can't have a roo, as mr man gets annoyed (you should see how long it took to get the goslings approved!) but I will take my chances if you don't know the sexes. I can take 3-5.

    I am excited!

    I am in Cotati, you are in Petaluma. I am off tomorrow afternoon.

    Let me know if you still have them and when I can swing by.

    Thanks, Chris

    Plus, I can take a few of the eggs, as I have momma duck setting (she's the middle duckling in my pic) and a frizzle that TRIED to set on about a dozen duck eggs, It was so funny! I took a few pics, and I will post them.

    Sorry everyone!!! IDK why but I thought I had clicked on the alert me if someone responds button and i guess I didn't... [​IMG]

    I have the white silkie pair left. I also have 6 babies still with mamas, and 2 more hens that should be hatching any day now,

    bibkel- yes i am... how ever did you figure that out LOL!!! guess my name is a give-away for anyone around here... they have all been raised in the petting farm there except for the 2 white ones, they are at my house but i can bring them over.

    i can meet anyone pretty much any day after like, 6pm. I work in santa rosa and get off normally around 5pm.

    (no sorry i won't ship my babies...)
