    Hi Everyone!

    I am from Attleboro, MA. We are starting a new chicken coop and were hoping to find maybe 2-4 female silkie chickens ready for early spring. Does anyone know where I may be able to find some locally in the Southeastern, MA/Rhode Island area? Thanks for your information - in advance!

    Hello Christina!
    Welcome to BYC and the coop! There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to joined the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around BYC. Just a word of caution. Silkies are notoriously hard to sex and by them being bantams, they typically do not vent sex them, for it could harm them. Be wary of anyone saying that their chicks are sexed. You usually cannot tell, until they either lay an egg or crow. Good luck with your future Silkies! :)
