Silkie

Our Silkie chicks and eggs are sold out until May.

We have been breeding Silkies for six years now. Our Silkies lines came from seven different breeders from AB, BC, SK, ON and QC. We do not sell sexed Silkies or trios. We only sell hatching eggs or unsexed chicks that are a few days old in the spring, which come from our mixed breeding pen.
With our mixed colour breeding pen we cannot fill orders for specific colors in regards to hatching eggs or chicks. We also cannot promise that our Silkie chicks will be show quality but they will be healthy and meet the breed standards. 
In 2019 we are going to use a couple of splash roosters over various colours of Silkie hens so the chicks will be different colours including blue, splash, black, paint and maybe a blue or splash 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.

$15 per chick/unsexed, $6 per fertile egg or $72 a dozen ,
We do not ship Silkie chicks-gate sales only

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). APA Weights: Rooster: 36 oz.  Hen: 32 oz
