    Hello,
    We had a tragic accident yesterday & lost our little silkie bantam hen. She was a black bearded Silkie. Does anyone know where I can purchase another female - I don't want to have to buy 20 chicks though :) We were going to get a white one next year at the local "Chick Days" so I think we'll get the white Silkie when we get another black but I need them to be both female. Thank you in advance for your help. It is greatly appreciated!

    If you don't it being a little expensive, mypetchicken.com will sex a silkie and you can order as few as 3 at a time. They also have all the colors, although you might have to wait if a color is back-ordered.
