Pullets: Assorted Silkie Bantams
Don't have the time, equipment or inclination to care for chicks? Or were you ready for fresh eggs yesterday? This is the tickets! At 6-7 weeks old, these started pullets are ready to go outdoors, with no heat or special care requirements.
Of all the ornamental chicken breeds, the Silkie Bantam is the most popular and most loved. Can't you tell why? They're the lap dog of the chicken world, complete with hair-like plumage and an incredibly sweet temperament. Silkies were originally bred in China, where they are still kept (and eaten) today. They have black skin and bones and 5 toes instead of the normal 4. In addition, Silkie hens make wonderful mothers and are even known to adopt baby ducks if given the chance! You will get a mix of bearded and non-bearded varieties with your Silkie order, and you may receive a White, Buff, Blue, Splash, Black or Partridge Silkie. For orders of multiple 6-week-old Silkies, we will do our best to include more than one color variety.
All 6-week-old chickens are shipped USPS Express Mail, and are vaccinated for Marek's and MG (killed).
Please keep your 6-week-olds quarantined from your existing flock for four or more weeks, and take care when introducing them.
