    I've been wanting some silkie ducks for a while. The only place I can find them is Holderreads. Does anyone know of any other hatcheries or breeders that sell silkie ducks?

    I am curious as to how long they have been around, because i was wondering if there was a standard of perfection for them in the APA book.

    We have one from Holderreads. She is a gray female and such a cutie! Very nice breed of ducks. They are not an accepted breed in the APA. She's a bit hard to see in her show cage, but you can tell the feathers are longer and silky-er in nature. They do not resemble silky chickens!

    Wouldn't it be something if they did! If they looked like a Silkie chicken with a duck bill and duck feet? [​IMG]
