    I haven't had alot of luck finding silkies in my area so I am going to get some from a hatchery. Can anyone reccomend a hatchery for obtaining silkies. I live in Georgia.

    I just got the new Cackle Hatchery catalog and they have a # of Silkies and Polish, in many colors. I use them and have had excellent success. They are in Missouri.

    Hatchery birds esp Silkies seem to be such poor quality. I would try buying hatching eggs and grow your own.[​IMG]

    If you want Show Quality you will are better off to get them from a private person but if you just want some good quality and some of them will have vaulted skulls the best hatchery is Ideal. I have seen lots of them from different hatcheries and Ideal were the best out of them all.

    Quote:Bartryon, You can feed them chick starter. Good luck with them, and enjoy them fuzzy butts! Show us pics.

    Leslie, Check with Dipsy or Bama they have hatching eggs for sale. I ordered from McMurray. They have a website and so does Cackle.
