Thread Starter 

I did a search and couldnt seem to find a silkie thread so i thought i would start one... I am getting a pretty good show quality silkie on friday.
Here is one of my old silkie hens. (i believe she was either partridge or silver...) R.I.P.

Hopefully i will have better luck with my new white silkie. I am hoping  she really is good quality because i plan on showing her..
This is what she is going to looks like: (its a horrible pic and no she doesnt have red skin)

I think there are tons of Silkie threads on the forum, but you can see some on my website.  I had to get rid of most of mine.  Here's a few I got to keep:

Beautiful pics of your Silkies!!  I only have one black baby,and not even sure if it is a pullet or a roo yet.  Eventually I would LOVE to get a couple splash pullets.

My zoo includes my hubby of 28 years, 3 grown kids and three grandbabies.  I am currently working on Lav/Split Ameraucana project, but I also have a few marans, silkies, a couple white leghorns, buff orphs, light sussex, welsmers, etc. I am a hatchaholic and I cannot stop!  Love all the different breeds. I have a paint horse and a goat too. My doggies include my Rottweiler and my pit bull...
