    Looking for a great home for 3 spoiled Silkie hens. Great layers, 3 different colors. MUST have either a fenced yard for them to free range in, or free-range on a larger property with an already-established flock of Silkies. I will not give them to a home where they are kept in a small pen with no access to grass - my girls are used to free-ranging in my fenced yard (a small subdivision lot, so nothing huge) so they are used to being able to eat grass and bugs all day and I prefer to have them go to a similar environment. I will drive to deliver them quite a distance if its to a perfect home, including to surrounding states.

    Hi! I'm in Lakeland and I have about 15 adult Silkies. I take in Silkie roos from people who can't have boys. All the birds are in coops, and all go out to free range during the day . I'll be glad to send pics. :)
