    I am located in Hillsville, VA

    I am wanting most likely 1 or 2 silkies (preferably hand raised for tameness and egg laying age...but chicks acceptable as well.)

    I want the silkies mostly for the kids to pet etc (i heard they are the dogs of the chicken world) but I also want some high producing yet gentle chickens. I just lost my only 2 golden comets (sexlinks) I had. They were okay to catch but didn't fight when you held them and laid at least 1 brown egg a day. I'd like to duplicate that. They were our first chickens so they are all we know when it comes to docileness...

    I will pick up if its local and maybe order from farther away if the shipping doesn't cost too much. THanks

    How many do you have to ship. I only wanted 2 maximum but was hoping for each of a different color....I just came back from being in maryland for 10 days...darn ....if only I knew...

    How much would shipping cost?

    Quote:Sorry, but I don't ship chicks or adults. I'd feel horrible if they didnt survive the trip. There's a chickenstock next Saturday in Martinsburg, WV. I'm sure you could find silkies there. [​IMG]
