On the hunt for silkies

We've been looking for a few Silkie hens ever since we first encountered one at The Hostel In The Forest. They're a very funny looking, somewhat small breed of chicken. With sort-of frizzy, hair-like feathers, we think they look like a yeti.

We've hunted on Craigslist, but no real luck. Plenty of people have roosters, but nobody really has chicks or hens. We've found one lady in Tampa who gets shipments in occasionally, but we have yet to hear back from her. I promised Taylor some for his birthday, which was a few months ago, so we better find some soon!
