Good luck finding them. I've been looking for two weeks. Silkies are hard to get as pullets, until they are much older you can't tell the difference. I've got ads on here, in York and Baltimore Craigslist looking for one. Got 1 response from an awesome Silkie breeder that I know for a 12 wk old for $40.00. Not a bad price for her birds, but she only had blue, which I'm not crazy about. I got a pair of Splash from her in the spring that are beautiful. It seems that the only options are hatcheries, which have horrible quality birds (I learned the hard way). If you do find someone, please let me know, and I'll keep you in mind as I search.
