    So far this is the only place I could find that has red silkie chicks. Are there any others out there? Does anyone have any exp. with this hatchery and silkies? I was told if you order silkies from a hatchery they don't really look like silkies. Does anyone have red silkies from a hatchery (post pics!) and reccommend that place?
     

  2. Hello,

    I did order silkies from Ideal last year although I did not order the Red variety. Here's my take: They are maybe the worst looking silkies ever. Most of them found new homes. I saved the best of the worst back for myself and a freind recently took a couple of extra roosters from me just to have around her farm yard. I ordered silkies from Cackel last year too, Blacks and some Blues, they turned out to be better looking silkies. You might want to try contacting them.
