    I have some young Silkies for sale. I live about 30 miles N. of Springfield, MO. they are very nice looking birds. They are mixed colors, and are from Kentucky Silkies stock.
    I have 6 that are 2 months old, some about half grown, and some that are starting to lay. Will sell pairs or trios. They have good crests, 5 toes, feathered feet, etc. anyone interested?

    Judy,
    How many do you have? How much are you asking?

    I have about 7 that are 2 or so months old, and 14 that are nearing maturity. I am already getting a couple eggs every day or so. And one of the little roosters thinks he is mature, also. LOL
    However, I wouldn't ship. I would meet someone a ways, maybe 30 miles each, but with gas the way it is, no further.

    Edited to add: forgot to say they range from $8 to $15 each. Depending on age, size, and type.

    Would you consider getting rid of some hatching eggs? How much for the half grown?

    About $8.00 for the half grown ones, I guess. Yes, I would consider some eggs, also. But they are coming pretty slow. My older "flock" of a roo and 4 hens, that I have hatched from, --three of the hens are sitting right now. I put 2 on eggs, and haven't done anything with the other one yet, but may as well set her, also. So only one of the older hens laying, plus the egg or 2 a day from the young pullets.

    No one? Gosh, I hate to take these to the sale barn, they are so nice. They do bring $10 to $15 each there, but the sale barn takes out a commission for selling them.
