Going to have a Google about and find some hopefully near us.


Yeah a silkie would be fine with others If bought at the same time. Happy chicks deliver to Glasgow so you could still order from there if you like. Sarah, the owner, is really helpful and they take the vaccination and well being of poultry very seriously xx they sell silkies too xx

We have a silkie in with our ex batts and she's fine :D . They don't necessarily need to be bought at the same time (mine wasn't), you just have to integrate them and allow the pecking order to be established.

We got out first lot from happychicks too, fab place and really helpful lady that runs it.

We'd had a silkie too and they are really friendly and mix well with the other larger breeds.
