    Ive looked around and cant find ANY hatcheries that carry splash silkies. Ive check website after website except Privett because theirs doesn't have a breed list and haven't found ONE!!! Anyone know???

    Well you would think any hatchery with Blue Silkies would have Splash ones... [​IMG]

    Quote:I ordered 10 blue Silkies from Privitt once, hoping to get a splash. I got 7 blue and 3 black. They were lovely and healthy, but I was somewhat disappointed not to get a splash. Any way you could hatch your own? I'm sure there's BBS breeders on here that would sell you hatching eggs.

    I wish I had pictures for you on our second generation. We got blues (not self blues mind you) from Ideal. They all looked black with a blue undertone. Second generations now I hatched out several splash chicks. Very pretty too. If I get a chance to get pics I will post them.

    A friend of mine has some very nice Splash silkies that she got from Cackle. If I were to get some from a hatchery, I'd definitely get them from Cackle. My friend's birds have really nice crests and beards...I was really surprised when she told me where they came from.

    I would order from Cackle but I dont want 25 chicks and in my past orders from them I had a high death rate from them. I sure wish Ideal carried them. Ive never had one die from them. I could only find a single guy in NM that breeds those so im going to call him later to see if he has some layers cuz I really wanna start a splash and blue flock.

    Dont know who they order from, but I assume if you order blues, you may get some splashes... [​IMG]

    Ya know one of the things I really hate about NM is that they have 2 TSCs in the entire state and their ATLEAST 3 HOURS AWAY!!!!
