    Depends on what you're looking for. Hatching eggs? Chicks? Started juveniles/pairs? Do you want to buy local or ship? You want pet quality or higher? I get a lot of my eggs/chicks from Bobbi Porto at www.indigoegg.us She has nice birds and lives near me. Hopefully I will be able to sell my own when they get a little older. [​IMG]

    do you want to hatch your own or buy chicks? I have pet quality silkies that I've been hatching just to test out my bator without paying a bunch and messing up expensive eggs. They have black skin, 5 toes, some have vaulted skulls. They are all blue. Where are you located?

    I ordered six silkies from My Pet Chicken, and believe it or not, they were all sexed correctly. They are very sweet, pretty little hens that lay cute little eggs:) Good
    luck!

    Everyone seems to have Silkies, just never near or cheap enough. I drove a total of 220miles for my birds, after searching for months, lol.

    I just got some in my bantam special from Ideal. They were only .99 cents, but I also got a ton of game hens that I don't really want.
