    Really interested in starting and raising chickens again. Right now I have around 65 netherland dwarf rabbits, and show in ARBA. I was looking for a nice small breed that are calm. I am thinking silkie, but I am having touble finding quality breeders in NY State. Can someone please help me? Thanks again!

    You might check other states that are close to you as well

    Better yet, you could post a “wanted” ad in the Buy/Sell/Trade forum under the age you are looking for (it is grouped by eggs, 1-8 weeks, >8weeks)
