    Hi! I have two beautiful Silkie hens that need a good home. Both are purebred and came from a reputable breeder in Texas. One is white while the other is buff. Born in September 2017. They are happy, spoiled hens that lay eggs very often!

    I am a new first time mom and am unable to provide enough attention and care for my beautiful birds with a baby now. As sad as I am to rehome them, I know they’ll be happier with an experienced new owner.

    Serious inquiries only and with previous proven experience please!

    We are in South Austin and would love to add them to our flock! They are in the coop at nite and get lots of fresh veggies and oatmeal with their Layena, scratch and water. 20190107_110857.jpg

    Silkies are a very quiet and passive breed. Your large birds are gonna beat them up bad unless you can keep them separated. That rooster will hurt them trying to mate as well.

    I agree with what @FishMtFarm just told you. You would have to keep them separate from the rest of your flock.

    As you can see we have 3 roos and 2 hens. Gaga the white Columbian Leghorn cross is very small. My roosters do not "Beat the hell out of anything." I hold them on my lap and preen their feathers everyday. They share 2 small coops and do not fight. They have enough room and food plus a clean environment. That promotes non aggressive behavior. The are Swedish Flower Hens. Very gentle and tame.

    My two big roos share the 2 small coops with the others and are gentle.

    I’m sure they are really good boys but you can’t change nature and hormones. They will try to mate those silkies and they are too big for them.
