    I'v decided it is nearly imposible to find silkies around here, I only want a silky or two...but hatcheries make u buy like 25 minimum. then theres the co-op, I don't think I could get a silky there that accually looks like a silky, could i?? From wat I'v heard..they will have too many or too little toes...hard feathers..and pink skin [​IMG]

    no breeders around here that I know of..

    WHERE CAN I GET SILKIES?! hahahah

    yes I am a bit odd, but I want house chickens. silkies to be exact...1 house silky to be specific..but I know they need to live in a flock, so 2 is good.


    so ye, does anyone out there know where you can find silkies that represent the breed well?? preferably 1 -3 day old chicks.

    yes I am picky eh? [​IMG] hahaha thanks for any replies I get.

    where in Canada do you live. I got my silkies from a friend and the guy at the feed store had contact numbers, we live in nova scotia.
    You might want to go to a feed store and see if they know of people and perhaps may have contact numbers of people who may have silkies.
