    You could talk to Ideal poultry, I know they have some but not sure about how they ship them.

    My Pet Chicken offers sexed silkie chicks. The only other option is to buy older ones so you can tell gender.

    Silkies are like potato chips. You just can't stop at one!

    (Go for the 8. You can always sell some off later.)

    I would keep an eye on craigslist if you have it where you are. You can also put in a wanted ad and maybe someone will have a couple extra they were thinking about selling.

    My Pet Chicken will sell as few as three chicks to major post offices but larger amounts are required for rural, as the eight the OP mentioned. What if you check with your neighbors and see if they will split an order with you. You can mix and match breeds for your required 8 chickens.
