I want 2 silkie hens (4 weeks or older) to add to my small flock. I was wondering if their are any breeders in Massachusetts. Preferably show quality. Thank you.

Are you interested in showing or are you just looking for better than hatchery pullets for your backyard flock? Usually breeder quality birds can't be sexed until they are at least 4 months old, or even older.

I am most likely not going to show them, the only reason I wanted Sq silkies is because I like their looks (flufiness) and I heard their temperament was better. And Age doesn't matter to me... I put 4-weeks or older because I don't want to buy a brooder.

Unfortunately I don't know of anyone that will sell just breeder/show quality pullets. Most will sell pairs only.

Golden Egg Farm is in MA and they show often. http://www.goldeneggfarm.com/ They may be at the Boston Poultry Expo in Oxford MA in June.

liljunie had some blue and white chicks a while ago.

I got chicks from Bobbi Porto three or 4 years ago. http://www.indigoegg.us/silkies.html Very nice birds. Of course you have to get them straight run and raise them.
