WEll, I have my beautiful 8 silkie chicks from ideal, they arrived healthy and hearty with 11 RIR baby boys as packing peanuts. I do want a rooster or two so I'm keeping 2 of them. I placed an ad in a local swap and sell guide yesterday and already got a response, someone wants all 9 baby boys. I just shouldn't worry why they want them all right? I mean, if they're going to be dinner thats life...right? I did write back to the person and asked if they had all the necessary supplies (heat, brooder, chick food). I feel like an overprotective mom already! I can't keep 11 roosters, so this is good news (I keep telling myself).
