QUALITY SILKIE CHICKENS AT AFFORDABLE
Welcome to our site. We hope you take the time and
browse around. We take pride in all of our silkies and
hope you will enjoy them too.
We try to answer all inquiries within a few days but
sometimes the farm keep us pretty busy so please be
|We are a small family farm located in central Illinois
and raise corn, soybeans, cattle and, of course, silkie
chickens. It started as my son's 4-H project in 2001
with a few silkies and turned into an obsession. He loves
all his birds and I have to admit they are pretty
entertaining. We keep a small flock and pay attention to
quality not quantity. All of our breeders have correct
combs, toes, type, large crests and are very fluffy. The
colors we raise are white, black, blue, splash, partridge,
buff and cuckoo. We will be also be trying some
lavendars and gray in 2012.
Silkies currently available will be listed on the for sale
page together with information on hatching eggs and
shipping. We try to keep our stock affordable so all can
enjoy these wonderful birds and please remember that
not all chicks grow up to be that perfect show bird but
they are all still wonderful.
We hope to have available in the fall of 2012 white and
pastel call ducks, silver, white and split wood ducks,
various teals, fawn and white runners and cayugas . We
just have to wait and see how the laying and hatching go
Our flock is NPIP certified.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions
or see something you like.

Due to the 2012 drought,
high levels of toxins
(alfatoxin, mycotoxin), have
been found in the corn
crop. This can cause
serious problems for your
birds especially breeders
and babies. Commercially
prepared feeds will usually
contain toxin binders which
will eliminate the problems
but please check your
labels. If you feed
cracked corn or grind your
own corn for feed, please
have it tested for toxins.
If you do find it in your
feed, you can puchase toxin
binders to add to the feed.
