    I need chicken people to relate with me. People understand my excitement of finding an ad for 3 silkie chicks for free.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    You have come to the right place for all the fun and learning! Stop by your state thread and do some chatting with your chicken neighbors. Maybe someone locally knows where you can get some Silkie chicks this time of year...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you

    Good luck and I hope you can find some Silkies soon!

    An important thing to know before getting silkies is: they are extremely difficult to sex before 4-5 mos. of age - sometimes you need to wait till they lay an egg or crow to be certain. If someone offers you young silkies as being a particular sex - skidaddle out of town , unless you don't care if you get cockerels.
