    Alex.....I dont know where you are...or what quality you are looking for, but in a few weeks I am hopeing to have several up for adoption. These are rescues..and in bad shape for now, so I want to get them healed. I know NOTHING about silkies, and I am thinking they are mixed breeds. I am in SE Indiana....let me know.

    Thank you. I am sorry they didn't turn out girls though. If you can't find any by spring, I will be ordering some more silkies or hatching more eggs. Again these will be pet quality birds. Good luck on the search.


    BTW:
    Are you SURE that they are boys? That would make 5/6 boys from the hatch and that is terrible! [​IMG]
