Does anyone have silky ducks, ducklings, or hatching eggs for sale?
Do you maybe mean Silky chickens? I've had Silkies before, but I havent heard of ducks..
There are silky ducks but I belive they are hard to come by. I've only seen them in Storey's Guide to Ducks.
Silkie chickens are cuties, but silky ducks are what I'm looking for. I'm building my breeding group, and artificially incubating and successfully hatching these little ones is tough going!
I believe there are different breeds of silkie ducks, for instance i have seen silkie calls, silkie rouens, and silkie mallards, i have no idea where you could find them though i am just curious of what adventures youll have with the cuties
I'm working on the bantam-sized ducks. They're interesting little guys. You need two genes for the silky feathers to show up; only one silky gene makes a duck a carrier. It seems that the very attractive silky-feather characteristic brings along with it challenging incubation requirements.
I think the bantam sized ones were calls ask @Lacrystol i think she used to own silkie calls
Yep--my first silky duck hatchling grew up to be almost exactly the same size as my aussie spotteds--a little bigger than my calls and black east indies, but definitely a pretty little girl. Thanks for the contact info!
I raise silkie calls!
I've got a few places left for this season's orders for hatching eggs and ducklings/juvies if interested
