    [​IMG] There are several dedicated silkie threads on BYC and Polish thread also, I think if you put it in the search box, they will pop up. Subscribe to any and all of them, so you won't have to search again. Then if you decide you don't care for some - just unsubscribe.

    My friend has 2 silkies and 2 seramas and no computer. By doing research for her I've learned a lot about the breeds and you will to. The most beautiful silkies she has ever had came from Sundown Waterfowl (a BYCer) she generally has ads in BYC's Buy/sell/trade forum in fall. She always have several good photos and descriptions of what she is selling. Since silkies are very hard to sex before 4-5 mos. old, the birds she sells are that age or older.
