    The very best way to see an endless parade of silkies is to subscribe to the Silkie Thread, on BYC. There are several others silkies threads generally differing by color ie, only partride silkies, buff silkies etc. Did you know there is also the Showgirl variety of silkies. If you have never seen them - they are worth the look. Welcome to Backyard Chickens.

    Here are my two silkies in a flock of 20 mixed breeds. These were a last minute add to my shipment of chicks they day they went out and I am so glad I got them. I just love them. Pearl has stayed way tinier than Pru. Can anyone tell me if I have roo/pullet on either yet?

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I used to raise Black Silkies, and they were delightful little birds; adorable, sweet, friendly, and funny. Definitely check out our Silkie threads at https://www.backyardchickens.com/newsearch?search=silkie+thread. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your Silkies.
