I think I know someone near you withsilkies for sale!!
Thanks for the shout out. I've never even seen this thread
I saw you on another thread and almost asked if you were in Abbeville, SC.
It depends on what you are looking for in silkies. I don't have any right now, but I have a ton in the spring. I sell pullets for $15 each, but they are nowhere near SQ. They are great pets, and hatch anything they lay, but I bought my original flock before I learned about SOP, and they aren't bred that well. I will put up a couple of pics at the end of this to show you what I have.
If you are looking for SQ, I found a woman in Enoree that has gorgeous breeder quality black/blue/splash silkies. They are a good bit more expensive, but they are worth what she is asking for them. I will post a link to her ad as well. https://greenville.craigslist.org/grd/5349478832.html
Enoree is a little over an hour from Abbeville, a little north of Woodruff. I'm 10 minutes from BMW
Here are a few of mine
Got it! Welcome to the ABC! :)
I'll be getting out new member packets this Friday.
Williston checking in again, it's been a while since I've been on here. My flock has changed a little bit, I have three pens going right now. Got the mixed pen which includes a BLRW roo with an assortment of ladies including one elderly BLRW hen, some red sex links, a black cochin, and two brown leghorns. Next pen is a breeding pair of cream legbars, and the last pen is two young pairs of Swedish Flowers. The Swedish Flowers are my new loves, they're so funny. If they're out foraging and see you coming, they'll start sprinting towards you. They stay just out of reach, but it's hilarious to watch them run. I can't decide if I'm over the cream legbars or not. Probably not, since I just got an incubator for Christmas. :) I'm so excited to fill it up. Don't tell the hubby, but I want to get back into Americaunas. I had blue wheatons years ago, and they were just so friendly and pretty. Egg production at my house has slowed way down, but I think that started because everyone decided to molt all at once. I've heard some people say that they give their birds oatmeal in the winter and their birds lay like crazy. Anyone got any experience with that? I really don't want to wait until spring to start hatching some chicks; patience is not one of my strong suits. I could build a brooder to put under our attached carport with one of those brooder radiant warmer things. Hubs would love that, haha.
