    Would like to see if there are any silkie breeders in 'central' Texas. I thought there was one but can't seen to find their info. And by 'central' TX I mean within a 125 mile radius of 76856 zip, Dallas/Ft. Worth is not central TX enough for me considering it's about a 4 hour drive one way [​IMG] San Angelo, Brownwood, San Antonio, Austin, Kerrville, Fredericksburg, etc. are all on my radar.

    Not really looking for SQ, PQ is fine and we are looking at B/B/S to add to our 3 white chicks. Not in a huge hurry or anything, just want to know my options so we can add when time is right.

    I live in Oklahoma, but my husband works in Sherman, Texas. I am fixing to set about 20-24 Blue's. I have a few in the incubator now. Can let you know what I hatch.

    I do have some older blues that are 6-8 weeks olds. You can see them on my website page. I have 2 Splash that are about 3-4 weeks old.

    Sherman is a bit far!! We are almost dead center of the state. I'm not sure hubby would go for that long of a road trip but we'll see......

    Sorry, I misread your post. I'm being a slow today [​IMG] Not feeling well, forgive me. Might try Bren she is in Paradise, Texas. Not sure how far that is from you.

    Barbi in Kaufman, Texas. But, these may also be a little far for you.

    Yep they are a bit far as well! I still get a kick out of how big this state is! No problem though, I'll figure out something, heck I may even decide to start breeding these things is there's no one else around these parts, you never know...... Plus, I may take a road trip somewhere close to someone who breed them and decide to drop them a line. I know I'm going home July 4th (NW Florida) so I may get some from a breeder out there....

    So many options... so much to explore.

    I live in the Austin area and am wanting silkies also. The feed store I deal with told me they'd be getting some in the spring (straight run though). I can keep you posted or give you their # if you like.
