    I just set up my account and looking for a SILKIE CHICKEN! :) Anyone know of available silkies in the Dallas area?
    Also, we can't have roosters in Dallas city limits, and its my understanding that you won't know if its a hen until 3-5 months old - is that correct?
    Thanks for any help! :)

    Have you tried craigslist? I've seen quite a few silkies on there. I know that there's several breeders in the Austin area right now.

    [​IMG] from California, redsoxs gave you some good advise. Mypetchicken.com sells sexed silkies so you will get females instead of straight run.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    Silkies are very difficult to sex until they are much older than other breeds
