    Does TSC carry silkies? I recieved thier pamphlet on what breeds they get but i thought i remember seeing some people with silkie chicks from tsc on this board. Also, how long do the chicks usually remain on sale for? The day they arrive i might be busy, do you think most will be gone by the next day?

    I don't know about yours, but here they are gone in minutes. The first shipment was gone before I got there (less than an hour after they got them). With the second shpiment I was actually able to get some but we had to take a number and it was first come, first served. I was # 7 and they were about 3/4 gone when it was my turn.

    I've never seen silkies at my local TSC. Just egg laying breeds & meat birds.

    My TSC is getting 1500 assorted pullets and straight runs from Mt Healthy Hatchery. This is a list of the chicks that Mt Healthy sells - don't see any silkies on it.

    Araucanas, Barred Plymouth Rock, White Rock, Black Australorps, Black Sex Link, Black Giants, Buff Orpingtons, Cornish Rock Comets, Brahmas, Wyandottes, New Hamps Reds, Partridge Rocks, Leghorns, Cochins, Speckled Sussex

    Your TSC might use a different hatchery and have a different assortment.

    I bought 2 silkies from our TSC. I think they all carry different varieties though.
