NEW FOR 2022!
Introducing one of the rarest baby chicks we have to offer for sale, The "LAVENDER" Silkie!
Feather Lover Farms is beyond excited to finally offer Lavender "Self Blue" Silkie chicks! The Silkie (also known as the Silky or Chinese silk chicken, are not necesarily a rare chicken breed, however, finding the popular silkie chicken in the true "Lavender" color is just about impossible to find. Feather Lover Farms is to our knowledge, the only chick hatchery in the United states to offer Lavender Silkie chicks. We have searched for Lavender Silkies for years and years and over time with the help of fellow chicken enthusiasts, that show chickens at poultry show competitions, we have been able to build up a hand selected and mostly unrelated flock of lavender silkies from many good show quality bloodlines. This means you will be able to raise and breed your own chicks from us. Though our adult stock was hand selected for show quality, we can not guarantee the chicks you receive will turn out to be show quality like many of their parents.
Our farm specializes in extremely rare chicken breeds imported from around the world and though silkies are not a rare imported chicken, the Lavender Silkie color is probably one of the top rarest chickens we have offered for sale. You literally can't find them anywhere else! With their lavender purple hue resembling royalty, the Lavender silkie should sure be treated like it. Don't miss your chance to order our Lavender Silkie chicks as they will sell out fast for Spring 2022.

Quick Chick FAQs:
Straight Run Chicks: Straight Run Chicks are un-sexed, randomly selected and each chick has a 50/50 chance of being a male or female.
Shipping: You will receive an automatic email and text message when your chicks ship along with tracking info. Chicks usually arrive in the morning 1-2 days later and your local Post Office will call you for pickup. Chicks are never delivered to your home address, even if you used a home address for your shipping address.
What I Need: Everything you need can usually be purchased at your local feed store. Chick starter feed, waterer, brooder (cardboard box, plastic storage bin, bathtub, or even a kiddie pool are popular), pine shavings, thermometer and a heat lamp or heat source. Baby chicks require heat of about 95 degrees their first week of life. Second week you can lower the temperature to 90 degrees and so on with every week going down 5 degrees until 6-8 weeks old or when they are ready to go "outside".
How Do My Chicks Survive Shipment?: Baby chicks do not need food or water for the first 72 hours of life. Ingesting their yolk sac gives them the nutrition they need to survive the journey from Feather Lover Farm's hatching facility to you! Shipping day-old chicks helps ensure a safe arrival since they will usually be just 2 days old when you receive them. Our packaging is professional with a brand new chick shipping box, nesting material and warm long lasting heat packs depending on the time of the year. Your chicks will look like they just hatched out of a nest when you open the box and jump into your arms, thinking you are their mother hen!
