    Last year my daughter and som showed meat birds at our local fair. This year they plan to show them again, but my daughter really wants to show silkies. We have 3 silkies right now (two black and on white) and they are our favorites. I would really like to get my daughter some show quality birds, but I don't know from where. We live in Ohio and are willing to drive a bit if need be. She needs to get them soon so that they can be laying by fair time. What would you all suggest? Any good breeders within driving range?

    Thanks so much!

    I pretty much live in Central Ohio. We are about an hour from Columbus and an hour from Dayton.

    Thanks!
