Deffo boy I reckon. He's got the Grecian 2000 look. Could do with a slightly better side view though.

Hi! I was wondering if there is someone selling silkies around Cheltenham/ Evesham/ Stratford on Avon/ Chipping Norton? I have been looking for some for ages. 2-3 hens colour unimportant. Willing to accept cockrel if coming with hens. Thanks

Have you tried bird-trader? Usually Silkies are not that hard to get hold of, they're popular with the 'cutesy wutesy' brigade (i.e. my missus :mrgreen: )

Hi, I live in Bloxham, 10 miles from Chippy and I have a black hen and 3 cockerels that need a home if you are interested. I breed a few now and again.
