Well, sounds like you need to get the stakes that were supposed to come with the socks.  If that was from a retailer, call them on the phone and have them overnighted to you for free.  If it was from a private party, call them and say WTF?  It could have been a simple mistake.  If not, don't let them skip out on false advertising.

Find a local steel supplier and buy some 3/8 aluminum rod.... it's pretty cheep per foot.

Bass pro and Cabelas both sell metal spikes and plastic tent stakes. Fairly inexpensive. I purchased 12- 5/15" x 7" metal spikes just to have as extras, I misplace things a lot.

Post a pic of one of the decoys. Do they come with heads or are they headless windsocks?

At those skyflys? If so, they should come with stakes, but you can also just buy the bags from them so maybe that is what you did accidently.

Be carful with that bamboo splintering!๐Ÿ˜
Good quick fix but look into the aluminum when you can.
