    I just lucked out and at our local Tractor Supply I got two Silkie chicks!! I am so happy as out of 24 eggs, I hatched only one and he/she is still good, but lonely. It has been with three different broods of babies and the latest one is now 4 times it's size. I want more Silkies too, so hatchery birds I got. Not ideal, but better than none! I am hoping to get more of CJ's Silkies this Spring and hatch some nice birds. Keep looking at your TSC or local farm store for some 'make-do' silkies.
