    What a bummer getting all roos. I would probably complain to the hatchery.

    Check with any Silkie breeder, even the best breeders have "culls", i.e. pet quality pullets/hens. I know Bobbi Porto (IndigoEgg on here) would help you out. Give her a PM, she always has plenty of birds to sell, even occasionally give away (pets). Tell her Fattie sent ya. [​IMG]

    Wish you were closer, I have several gray partridge I need to move. Not breeding that color. They came out of my Split Lav pen. I call them the Mutts.
