Ixworth to offer

I have on offer our beautiful looking Ixworth cockerel.
Rare breed.
Would make a great addition to any breeding plan or as a pet alike. Bred from unrelated parents.

Only 6 months old, DOB 09-09-12
Used to kids, adults, rabbits and dogs.
Has been free ranged all his life. A very good sized bird.

On offer as we are reducing the number of cockerels we have.

Will accept either:
- offer (only looking for nominal offer, good home more important than price)
- would swap with a good, healthy hen up to 1 year old - doesn't need to be at POL, may swap with a younger hen if on offer.

Based: Bury, Lancashire (near manchester, rochdale, bolton, ramsbottom)


He's a rather splendid chap We have a few Ixworth keepers on the forum, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Thanks bodger

He's such a lovely bird, shame to have to find a new home for him but we just don't have room for 4 cockerels in 1 area  

fingers crossed we can locate him to a new home with a wife or two for him

Hi-would really like this fellow but need to work out the logistics as we are East Yorks!! Could you do daytime collection if I took a trip over with the kids?

Have to add would be a breeding bird-we have a nice group of pullets looking for a man!! What is the snow like over towards you? We have missed it but I know West Yorks have had a lot particularly high up.

Hi freckle,
We are available for daytime collection if it is easiest for you. Would you be looking to do a swap for him or buying? Cheers x

To buy pls-lost my breeding flock to dastardly mink so just have a few pullets following on-wanting to hang on to them to give us plenty of hatching eggs.

That's fine. We are looking for around 20 for him instead of the 35 that he should be as a good home is more important x

Hi Freckle,

Just checking if you are still interested in our boy, I have had another enquiry  about him. Holding off replying to them at this point for you, if your still interested I'll let them know he's reserved.

Thanks x

PM you!
