Last week the silkie started crowing, so it was time to find a place for him. I placed an ad on Craigslist asking $15 (more expensive than the cost of a Safeway chicken so he'd only get bought as a pet), but nobody responded to the ad. This chicken is quite small, so we didn't really want to have him for meat ourselves.
Richard had the idea of calling Art Knapps, a local garden center that sells chickens, peacocks, pigeons, etc. Amazingly enough they said they'd take him. They're going to group him with two other red 1/2 silkie hens. I think this is about the best outcome we could have hoped.
