    My son is joining FFA and wants to enter a Silkie in next years fair. I know this sounds weird but I was wondering if there is anyone in the Ocala area that has some Silkie chicks that we could sort of borrow. We would feed them, raise them for the show and then when the shows over in Feb you could have them back as grown ups. The sex or color doesn't matter to him, but would like for them to come from good stock without any DQ in the bloodlines if possible. We used to have Silkies and have shown them before but we got rid of them. I don't want to breed Silkies anymore or have to bother with selling them later so I though this would work if anyone was interested in allowing him to raise a couple of chicks. So you would save money on feed. If anyone is willing PM me. [​IMG]

    I have been looking for a family that is involved in 4H to care for and show my birds. I'm located in Apopka (depending on where you are in Ocala, it's anywhere from an hour to two hour drive). I just hatched some babies on 8/24/11 that I would be willing to share. They would be 6 months old by February. My stock is from Bobbi Porto, Sunshine Silkies, and Three Cedars Silkies.

    Let me know if you are interested and I could reserve a couple from this hatch.
