    Try Eggbid

    Look at the listings and if you see something you like, register and bid on it or contact the seller and see what they may have that is not listed in the auctions.

    You want a baby chick or a grown bird?? I know that a grown bird will not be shipped to you.??? Just wondering what exactly you are looking for?

    You can ship a grown bird but the shipping alone will run about $45!!! His silkie girl is about 4 months old so he'll have to get an adult to integrate or raise a chick alone.

    Alex,

    Have you checked with Napalongtail? She lives in Washington.

    Silkie, they will actually ship a grown bird? How would they do that? I've been in trucking for 15 years and have never shipped a live animal, although, I know it can be done, I would think it would be very very expensive and I'm curious, who ships live animals??

    I personally don't know but there are some posts on here that talk about how. I think they have to go by like USPS and you need to buy the special biohazard containment shipping container to do it too.
