    I've been trying to track some down for awhile now and no luck. I only want hens because I already have 4 roosters. I want the calico color #1 and then I would buy another silkie of any color as well so I could introduce the hens as a pair to my flock. If anyone has any info on calico silkie hens for sale, please let me know! Thanks!!

    I should have some youngsters in a couple of months as soon as I get my pens finished.

    Oh great! I just checked out your site and saw you have lots of great, rare colors! I'll keep your site info handy and check back in a couple months. Looks like you are a day's trip away too. I will probably come in person to check out your chicks and get some different colors. I really want the calico though, so I'll revolve my trip around them. Thanks!

    As soon as I start hatching I'll let you know. I have to get them separated and give them time with their partners to make sure they are fertilized by the right boys.

    I have way too many colors! :)

    Also, I forgot to mention I would be interested in buying some other colors as well, blue splash, paint, light partridge color, or even one of your salmon colors. I don't have a huge preference on which ones I would want other than the calico, but I was hoping to get some bearded. I have mostly non-bearded now and really wanted some bearded as well. Hopefully I can get a few different ones from you at the same time. Thanks, Erika

    I was wondering if you think my 6 month old patridge silkie rooster will be good quality? This is my first batch of silkies, and I am thinking of breeding to show.

    He is beautiful! Are you selling? Do you have calico? I was also looking for light colored partridge, but I love the red in him. I think my partridge are the standard brown/black.

    No, I am not selling him. I do have another rooster that I will probably sell. He isn't this pretty though. He is still feathering out, so he might get prettier. What I want to do is start selectively breeding and selling. I am hatching 20 eggs right now, but I am not sure they are viable. Cross your fingers. Also, I've been looking all around for a good website that explains what makes silkies show quality, one with pics and stuff... and I can't find anything informative enough. Have you come across any good ones?

    Oh, I was only looking for babies. After they can be sexed I'll only keep the females because I have 5 roosters already! But thanks anyways.
