    Hello, I am looking for recommendations for good silkie breeders who can ship chicks. I'm looking for good quality birds that are out of show winning stock, not birds that just meet the breed standard! I'm not picky about color! I'd prefer to buy online and have them shipped but if you know of any local breeders in Oklahoma or surrounding areas please let me know! Thank you for your time!

    Hi! Do you have a Facebook? If so, then joining the 'Silkie Chickens' page would really help. There are plenty of sellers that have GORGEOUS birds.
    Here's the link:

    A seller that I see often is Bobbi Porto he has some birds that are absolutely beautiful!

    I'm not sure if he sells chicks, but oh boy, would it be worth buying anything from him!

    I joined that one a while ago and a couple local groups but I never considered looking for breeders in it since I haven't seen any for sale post. I'll definitely check that out! and I've seen Bobbi Porto website but I was a little confused on which ones were for sale. I'll have to look more into it! Thank you so much! I can't tell you how much I appreciate this. I really want to get into showing so any advice helps!

    Showing is plenty of fun! I've never showed my birds(planning for the local poultry show, but have to wait until may of next year) but a close friend of mine has, and I helped her prepare her birds.

    I'd suggest giving him a ring or a text and asking, I was kinda confused as well. (Here's his contact page)
