Hi everyone, today is a sad day for me as I woke up to a pathetic attempt of a crow from my silkie Milly, or should I say Billy. I'm going to have to ship him back but I can't do it till I get another "mom" for the chicks. My chicks are so attached to him they scream when I even hold him! My next birds coming Monday but I want to make sure the babies will be ok. Also I want to make double sure he's actually crowing. Which I'm sure he is but before I call it on him I just have to hear it again. Luckily I got a hen guarantee on him so they are "supposed " to give me another bird. Based on availability! So I don't know... I'm really sad. I became so attached to him! I do know for sure my other two babies are female. I had them DNA tested. Well just wanted to let you all know.... very sad... he's a beautiful bird and so sweet! I just can't have a cockerel. I know the breeder will re home him to a good home it's just my heart is broken. But I guess it's best for Billy and Me....I just worry bout those babies being so attached to him! Do you think they will be ok? Once my new bird gets here? God I pray that one don't crow too! ~sigh~ any encouragement is welcome!! I'm having a rough morning!
