We were bitten by the silkie chicken bug a couple of years ago and started a small breeding program with our white bearded silkies. Since then we have added a few different varieties. We started in chickens to have fresh, healthier eggs and meat for ourselves and our dogs...then we found these beauties. Silkies are adorable and sweet chickens that make wonderful pets. Even the roos are sweet. If you are interested in owning our silkies see below for availability.
Above is my new cock "Streak" bred by Donna McCormick....he is stunning.
Another image of Streak...I am so smitten with this boy!

Cute silkie bum... and young, comical chicks.
Initial white breeding stock came from Geri Godina, from Catdance, Northwoods, and Sassy.
All of my birds are bearded. I cull heavily for type, wings, and light skin - keeping only the best. I can't keep many, so the birds in my breeding pen are exceptional or they go. I usually have pq chicks and older birds available. Shipping available, weather permitting.
See below for information regarding our new varieties.
These birds are so much fun! Everyone should have a few!
Our new Grays
I was very fortunate to obtain these beauties from Donna McCormick. I met Donna this past spring and she has taught me so much already. I feel very fortunate to have met her and honored to have her birds and her friendship. These were her pride and joy Grays and I will do my best to continue her hard work and lines. I have my work cut out for me despite having these, as gray is the hardest variety to work on as I have been told. I will not be selling eggs or chicks from these birds but once I get the hang of it I will offer started birds on occasion.
You can see more of Donna's birds here.
We also have acquired Donna's pure blacks and a gorgeous partridge hen. More images soon.
Feel free to contact us for availability.
Boris is the flock guardian and what an awesome dog. He saved one of my silkie hens from a hawk last fall. She lost her wing, but she survived. He is also always on " 'possum patrol", dispatching the poor things as soon as they are over the fence.
