    Splash Orp, Speckled Sussex,Delaware plus others...
    These will be going to the feedstore, possibly tomorrow, and although I hate it, will eat corn in a cage until they're sold. That's all they feed the birds for sale there, but I have no choice.
    The Splash Orpington cockerel is worth the entire bunch combined-he's HUGE! He's from a breeder and will be a nice one.
    I also have 4 Speckled Sussex, one could be a pullet, but I can't guarantee that. Sorry, this is my first year with this breed and some of these were confusing me a little, LOL.
    I have 2 Barred Plymouth Rock cockerels and 1 Barred Rock pullet, but I want $2.50 for the pullet and I'll only sell the pullet if you buy more than one cockerel, sorry. I can use her myself so I'm just using her as bait here, LOL.
    There is one Delaware cockerel left, too, a handsome guy. All these cockerels are being sold for $1 apiece and as I said, the Orpington is worth the entire bunch; buy these and resell them. I'd love for them to go as a group, but will sell less. PickUp/Cash only. Im near the juncture of TN, GA and NC.
    ***I still have three beautiful Ameraucana cockerels from show stock out of California, but I want $5 each for these. Two blues, one black. Very, very nice!
    Imagine these for just $1:

    I'd love to come and get them but it is a little too far to drive for me. Beautiful birds though.
    Looking at your pictures if that is a cockeral Delaware I'm in trouble because I have at least 2 maybe 3 and they were supposed to be pullets! <insert bummed-out>

    LOL, yep, he's definitely a cockerel. I hatched four, two boys and two girls. A man bought one boy and both pullets and this is the odd man out. He's 9 weeks old now. Hope you have pullets, but if you got them from a hatchery, I know from personal experience that they do make sexing mistakes occasionally.
    Wish you could come get them, too! What part of Ga are you in? We're about 2 hours from Atlanta.

    Still available, folks. The feedstore is still full up with birds for sale today, so these are here a few more days.

    Oh I wish I was closer, or you could ship. I am currently looking for an Ameraucana cockerel. I have 5 beautifull hens...no Roo. Guess I will just have to look closer to me. Hope all of yours get good homes..they are beautifull!

    I wish you were closer, too, Deb. I know you would be someone that could appreciate this largest Ameraucana cockerel I have. He is so amazing that I did consider keeping him, but my DH would kill me then torture me, then kill me again if I made him build another pen/coop, LOL. I am totally in love with him-he has a beard so thick and big, he has the head of a chow dog, LOL. I mean the baby rooster, not my husband!

    I'm in Paulding County. You are a good ways from me. I have too many things on my plate right now and I also made DH make a promise no more chickens so I have to up hold that with the exception of a RIR roo. For a while there he answered every freebie ad and it was just too much.

    Yep, I know exactly where you are. My DH's family is in Cherokee, Cobb and Paulding. I think it may be two or three hours for you to my place. I get the "put the brakes on" thing, LOL. You have to know when to stop. Not easy with chickens, though!
