This isn't just any chicken. This is the Silkie Chicken. It's got a style all its own, with a fluffy plumage that's unlike anything you've ever seen. But it's not just about looks. This chicken is a game-changer. It's a conversation starter. It's a statement. 

Silkie Chicks are a special breed of chicken beloved for its fluffy, luxurious feathers. They make a great addition to any backyard poultry flock and make wonderful pets for children. The silk-like feathers only add to their unique charm!

In addition to their distinctive physical characteristics, Silkies are well known for their calm, friendly temperament. Among the most docile of poultry, Silkies are considered an ideal pet. They are also known for their high level of maternal instinct and are often used to hatch eggs from other breeds and species.

Despite their exotic appearance, Silkies are relatively easy to keep as pets. They are hardy, adaptable, and require the same care as other chicken breeds. They are also known for their love of dust baths and will create dust bowls in the garden to keep their feathers clean.

However, it's important to note that their unique feathers lack the barbicels that hold most bird feathers together, which means they aren't waterproof and can become quite soaked in the rain. Therefore, they need a dry, safe place to live.

Silkies are not known for their laying abilities. They lay a fair amount of small, cream-colored eggs, but not as many as some other breeds. They are more often kept for their ornamental value, or as pets, rather than for egg production. The chicks are unsexed.

When you bring a Silkie Chicken into your life, you're not just getting a pet, you're getting a story. A story of uniqueness, of standing out, of not being afraid to be different. So, are you ready to step up and embrace the extraordinary? Because Silkie Chicks are finally here.

We strive to provide a thriving and well cared for chickens to you. We provide Non-GMO feed, yogurt, raw milk, and tested regularly for healthy birds. We go the extra miles for your peace of mind!

FAQs - Baby Chicks

All of our breeds are sold straight run, and customers have a 50/50 chance of receiving males or females. If you are looking for a certain number of female chicks, we'd suggest adding a few extras to your order. We do offer older ages including: juveniles, adults, laying hens, pullets or roosters if you have a specific need. The list of those breeds is found here ... We are happy to arrange a custom order as well. Please contact us.

No, we do not vaccinate our flock or baby chicks. We constantly monitor this with our poultry vet to ensure our birds are healthy and robust. We are tested yearly for disease as NPIP participants and customers can be confident that they are receiving healthy, happy chicks from our farms.

Did you know?... They don't crow till about 12 weeks at the absolute earliest, most later than that.

Couple options for roosters...

1. Use him for food for the family, maybe you have a hunter in the family that could help. Often there are families that will buy or take the rooster for meat for their family.

2. Once hes older than four months old, Pratt's Pets (Glendale location) will purchase them from you for $10 per. If they're younger than four months, the Stock Shop will accept them if they have space.

3. You could also post them in the Arizona Backyard Chicken group on Facebook to rehome him. Just have to be VERY careful with your wording. Rehome, sale and wording like that is not allowed by FB.

4. Another app called MeWe you can rehome/sell there in the Arizona Backyard Chicken group but not nearly as many people in the group.

To join the group on MeWe:

Definitely options out there. Hope this gives you some ideas. 👍😁🍻

Our available chicks and eggs are always updated on our website. You can find the next available chicks here or contact us to see what we have to take home today. We often have a few.

The locations of our farms we are generally able to provide chicks and hatching eggs year around. Our hens do get 2-3 months off per year for a break to molt, rotate and just be a chicken. This is the time of year we will see lower egg counts and our availability less.

Our recommendation and best practices: From October to March we suggest a shipping minimum of 10 chicks to ensure that chicks stay warm enough during transit. During the peak months, April -September, the recommended minimum to 6 chicks.

We gladly offer local pick up for your order. We have strict biosecurity measures for both our flocks safety. Once your order has been placed and notified your order is ready to come home, we pre-arrange a pick up time and date with you to come to our pick up drive-thru. Very simple, we have your order boxed and ready to travel home for you. You will not need to bring any boxes, cartons or crates. Local pick up orders are considered sale is final.
