*We do not sell pullets, hens nor adult birds.
*We only sell unsexed/straight run (approx. 50% male and 50% female but no guarantees)
*Silkie chicks are sold/picked up when they are a few days old in May and June.
*With our mixed colour Silkie breeding pen we cannot fill orders for specific colors on chicks (ie only white Silkies).
*Each small setting of Silkie eggs is limited so you get what colour hatches at the time of your order.
We have been breeding bantam Silkies since 2012. Our Silkie lines originally came from several different top breeders from AB, BC, SK, ON and QC and these lines were combined in our breeding program. We also cannot promise that our Silkie chicks will be show quality, but they will be healthy and meet the breed standards.
We suggest that when you keep different chicken breeds together, Silkies would do better with other gentle companions such as our Breda Fowl, Silver Laced Polish, Cream Brabanter and Cochin.
We use several different coloured Silkie roosters living and breeding with our various coloured Silkie hens year-round. Therefore, our Silkie chick colours may include blue, black, buff, splash, silver, paint, white, porcelain, partridge or mixed colourations with buff, silver or white highlights. There may also be a Sizzle chick or two hatching as we have a couple of Sizzle Silkie hens in that breeding pen.

Silkies are one of the first breeds of chicken to have been admitted to the APA Standard of Perfection, in 1874. Silkies originated in Asia, most likely in China, but their specific source is a mystery. It is said that Marco Polo wrote about them as early as the 1400s. They are extremely docile, and their ornamental plumage makes them a standout in a flock. Though they are fair layers themselves, laying about three eggs a week, they are commonly used to hatch eggs from other breeds and bird species. Silkies thrive in warm climates where heavier breeds might suffer. The breed has several other unusual qualities, such as dark blue flesh and bones, blue earlobes, and five toes on each foot (most chickens only have four).
