    Has anyone used these for recipes?
    Thought maybe someone "cheffy" would since it would add a color difference to your meal.
    Just wondered since I see a lot of folks trying to get rid of roos and going no-where.
    Or is there more of a market for them if you put them in paper for Asian people?

    Silkies for meat is a taboo subject in my home. DD has become enamoured of her Silkies. (It's true that they steal your soul). If I couldn't rehome Silkie roos, I would *sneak* out without DD and visit with certain people. These people are the owners of two restaurants and the manager of an Asian market. I think I could find takers. HOWEVER, I have managed to rehome a couple Silkie roosters through Craig's List. In fact, I got an amazing response.
    Good luck. Too many roos is not good.

    I would try Craigslist. I had good luck finding happy homes for my extra roos there, and they didn't wind up as dinner for anyone. Make sure you post pictures. Who could resist something that looks like it's from a Dr. Suess book?
