    hey, I cannot find ANY silky breeders in ontario...

    I think I read somewhere a user on this site .. Kerr? knows of one?? I can't contact Kerr tho...


    does anyone else know of any place to get silky chicks??

    Preferably not a hatchery, I don't want any more than 2 chicks..also around the toronto area if possible...


    thanks![​IMG]

    www.performancepoultry.com lists silkies in various colors. they are a small hatchery, located in prince edward county (couple hrs from Toronto). I have never dealt with them but you might at least try calling them?

    good luck

    I have silkies, although I am not a breeder. I do know a good breeder that lives in Georgetown, just 20 mins west of Toronto. I know he has white & buff for sure. However, at this time of year I don't think he is hatching any. You could also visit the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto Nov. 6-7. The best breeders in the country will be showing their poultry. You could get a contact name at the show for silkies. Me & my silkies will be there.

    oh and I contacted Performance Poultry, the only thing with them is they only have silkies in may - june. Also I have no clue if there "show quality" silkies acually are...as you arent aloud to see the hens...and there are barely any pix.

    Except for 2005 & 2006,(thanx to the Avian Flu Paranoia) there has been a poultry show at the Royal Winter Fair since 1922.

    Is there any way I can contact the breeder in georgetown?

    I contacted him, & he is not hatching or selling till the spring. I am looking at getting a Buff breeding pair from him, but I don't think I would be hatching until winter is over.​
