Compatibility

Silkies although suited to our British climate prefer to stay dry and warm, their soft feathers have no natural waterproofing, a covered run would be ideal. They have feathered feet so foot maintenance in the winter is important, they would not be happy in a wet or muddy environment. They are robust when being handled by children and make great pets. They are a flightless bird so will need a house near or on the ground, they do not like to climb or roost.

Our Happy Customers

“The customer service and aftercare from the team has been excellent”

"We had one silkie and one pekin bantam delivered nearly 3 weeks ago. They were beautiful and healthy. We had some issues with the pekin acting territorial around bedtime and were worried we wouldn't be able to sort it out. However I got in touch with Susanna at Pipinchick and she gave us loads of great advice. The hens are now snuggling up together each night and we've even started getting eggs! The customer service and aftercare from the team has been excellent and I would highly recommend especially for new chicken owners."

“Excellent service”

Andrew, Aug ‘23

“The hens arrived in great condition”

"I have brought two showgirls from pipinchick poultry and I have to say they were worth every penny. They were very accommodating to my questions and requests, Organising delivery to my door and they kept it all social distanced. The hens arrived in great condition, calm, mite/ lice free and really healthy. They provided advice on how to integrate the hens with the rest of the flock which was very helpful, they settled in almost immediately and they are super friendly.
They have both recently started laying and haven't stopped!
I can’t rate them highly enough. Many thanks Pipinchick."

“Excellent communication from the team”

"Wow - I got 2 silkies and 2 polish pullets from Pipinchick in August and they are stunning, friendly birds who have settled right in. Lovely condition and well socialised. I am ordering some more now and this is the only place I would be confident to buy from. Excellent communication from the team and delivery nationwide is excellent. I cannot recommend highly enough."

Rebecca, Sept ‘21

“Really impressed by the service”

"We collected 3 non bearded silkies and 2 sablepoots recently and they are all doing really well and have settled in nicely and they are definitely used to human company. We have even had our first egg. We were really impressed by the service and would definitely use again and recommend to others."

“Customer for life”

“We rescued three silkies from another source in may, as a first time chicken owner I did not know that I was purchasing not very well looked after birds and was misinformed about their upkeep… two months later one of our rescue silkies passed away…
I wanted to add to our flock and contacted many places, most, if not all were either rude, dismissive or ignored me altogether…
Until I found pipinchicksilkies… from the very first email Susanna was a breath of fresh air… she was helpful and very kind and made the whole process so much more relaxing… and this week our new fluffy girls arrived … they are absolutely beautiful and clearly well looked after, I cannot recommend Pipinchick more highly if I tried, amazing customer service and amazing healthy well-loved hens, we will never use another supplier again for our chicken needs … customer for life ❤️”

“I am so impressed with Pipinchick Poultry”

“I am so impressed with Pipinchick Poultry. I had two white silkies delivered by them in July and they are perfect. Despite the long 4 hour journey they arrived hydrated and happy. They have settled in so well and are already laying eggs. They are beautiful hens. Such a pure white colouring. Would thoroughly recommend ordering your hens from them. I have also ordered chicken supplies from them and they’ve been brilliant. 10/10!”

“The buying process was easy”

“We got our four silkie chicks from Pipinchick in Feb ’22. The buying process was easy with good advice and help. It was wonderful to have them brought to us by car by someone so knowledgeable. They were nestled together in a cozy box with straw. It was a lovely touch to add a packet of sweet smelling, calming nibbles to add to their food.”

Rebecca, Dec ‘23
