    A lady in Florida is shipping them. Do you want me to ask her if she has any left? Just pm me.
    I am going to use the roo as our flock rooster too. Maybe next year we will have some silkie mix eggs!
    I cant say they are show quality or not, but thats okay with us. I like the look of them anyway.

    Congrats! I love my white silkie... she's the sweetest little baby we have. A good mama, and a lap chicken if there ever was one. We're trying to get a good white roo for her and will be breeding her and a set of buffs in the spring!

    You will be soooooooooooo pleased with your new girls. [​IMG]

    They are hard to find here too. There are blacks everywhere, and very low quaulity whites. I've been offered good money for my white who was a rescue, because one with a poof like mine has is impossible to find here. I also had people offering me money if she ever hatches a roo!? I figured I'd have to give one away.

    I think in some places Silkies are just hard to come by at all. I saw someone who could not find a silkie for sale in their entire state just a week or so ago on here.
