    I have had the worst time getting new blood here in MS due to low hatch rates and no one near me really raising quality silkies. I would like to price shipping of about 5 or 6 silkie babies or youngsters or a couple of nice pullets to 38901 area code. I want quality but I don't have a ton of money. Just checking to see what it will cost and if that is a better option than spending so much on eggs and not getting any to hatch.

    Thanks for the info.

    I'm so scared to ship! If you're ever near Jacksonville, Fla I have some nice silkies and so do a couple of other board members!

    I'm pretty sure the express shipping for live bird boxes runs around $55. If you wanted to pay for it I could ship you some out of my next hatch.

    Mine would depend on what I have. Usually I sell silkie chicks for $5 each.

    I have a couple of showgirl chicks that I'll be selling here in the next couple of weeks. Probably for about $10 each.
