It seems that every year, despite having expanded our Silkie breeder hens in preparation for more chicken mania, Silkie availability becomes so spotty that it can mean a long wait when you order several different colors. But hey, chin up! All Silkies are cool -- and My Pet Chicken is the one and only place where you can pick whether you want males, females, or straight run (unsexed)!

And, according to a recent poll we conducted, Silkies are the #1 favorite choice for children! When stacked up against super popular breeds like Orpingtons, Cochins, Brahmas and Easter Eggers, they were the favorite, capturing 30% of the vote compared to just 24% for the next most popular choice. See the results, here.

Your purchase of a Silkie Bantam assortment will get you a hatchery choice of bearded and non-bearded Silkies, in any combination of the following colors:
  • Splash
  • Blue
  • White
  • Black
  • Buff
  • Partridge
We do not takes special requests when you order an assortment: your order of "assorted silkies" will consist of the colors that hatched particularly well that week, which is why the assortments can be quicker to schedule (and less expensive than ordering specific colors). If you want to be guaranteed a specific color or colors, you must order those specific colors separately, pay full price, and wait for the first week they are predicted to be available.
