    Does anyone know where I can get either of those chicks from this week? I had 14 chicks hatch yesterday but none of my silikes made it. I would really love to add a couple but I cant find anywhere that has them now

    I am so sorry to hear your chickies didn't make it. [​IMG]

    Perhaps try making a post in the "Where am I? Where are you?" section and find the thread for the area where you live. If you make a posting there, you'll possibly find someone in your area who has some.

    I have silkie eggs in the incubator right now. Two pipped this morning, but there's been nothing since. If you were in my area & I had a good hatch, I'd be more than happy to pass along a couple silkie chicks with a fellow BYCer who lost theirs.

    Good luck & I hope you find someone in your area with silkies & frizzles. [​IMG]

    I have a 4-1/2 week old bantam cochin frizzle rooster I'm gonna have to rehome, but his brother (the one I was gonna keep) is sick and might not make it so I am not sure yet.

    I don't know if you have a Tractor Supply or Atwoods near you but I found Silkies there. Don't know about frizzels.

    Frizzles are a feather type where the feathers curl, and occurs in many breeds, one of the most common being cochins. I would assume thats what u are looking for when you say Frizzles?

    It would definitely help to know where you are located. I know several people around my area that breed and sell silkies regularly.

    And "Sizzles" are silkies with frizzled feathers.
