Available on a first come, forst serve basis.

Up for sale are splash silkie-bantam chicks. They were hatched approx 4/08. They are $15 each. This is a difficult pattern to find. Splash silkie patterning features a base of white or light blue feathers with "splashes" of black or dark blue. They are a bantam breed, which means they are smaller than average chickens. But their eggs are still perfectly good table fare. Silkies have black skin and an extra toe. Silkies are also among the friendliest and most docile breeds. Theyr'e a top choice for backyard chickens because of their affectionate nature, mild temperament and soft fluffy plumage. They make excellent mothers and will usually volunteer to hatch a clutch of eggs for your whole flock. The broodiness has been bred out of a lot of chicken breeds. But silkies are great to have around if you don't want to pay for an incubator. They also tend to stay closer to the ground without the same need to perch high, and because of their fine feathers, they don't really fly.

The chick pictures are from the actual birds from this batch. We have also included some examples of the mature birds just to show what the adult plumage of splash silkies can look like. The patterns will appear as their adult feathers form.


We also have lavender silkie bantams available.
