    I am interested in some show quality White Bearded Silkies, Wheaten Old English, Dark Cornish and Dutch Bantams. If you breed or you know someone please help me.
    Thank you BKPuckett

    There are breed-specific threads on here where the breeders hang out sometimes...it would be called "the silkie thread" etc. You might try there.

    I personally have hatched chicks from kelar on BYC and LOVED them (silkies). Very large crests.

    The other day I collected three eggs they are a size of a Cadbury creme egg I found one and I couldn't find the other it was under Felicty. Felicty let me have but I checked under her and I found another 2

    Felicty was younger than the others while they were 20 weeks she was only 14 weeks she had 2 others friends Elizabeth and Daphney but Daphney died of sickness and Elizabeth killed by our neighbours dog as our family live 20 meters apart our . Grandpa and Granny lives behind us and my uncle lives down the hill of the state park.
