    So I may end up sitting on these little ones for another 2 months or more? I looked it up and they are just shy of 4 months. They may be cute but I'm starting to think they aren't worth the time/space to get them up and running.Unless some roos never really crow a lot. In my flock silence is golden.

    I have 6 silkies now 4 came from a breeder who just used the silkies and their offspring to pay for their feed for his animals, who are 20 weeks. And 2 that came from a hatchery who are 3 weeks. I do plan on breeding and the 2 I would be using for their colors have the single comb but they are just pets so the comb type doesn't really matter to me.


    Every cocker I had was a rescue (5) and all but 1 had a really strong prey drive. 3 of them would actually kill ducks/birds if they came into the yard. One would even dive in the pool after turtles, snakes and fish.

    You would think that my roo being the only guy in the flock would crow already....i can't wait to hear his crow! Flocks not compete with out a rooster crow. I guess I can wait 4 more Weeks ;) he's not going anywhere

    Looks like a pullet but a side on shot and a full body shot would be helpful.
