The owner claimed they were shutting down and selling on this thread
This is his post from June of last year:
Hi Christie, I'm really sorry about the circumstances that we are going through currently which make it hard for us to issue a quick refund to all of our customers. Unfortunately, our finances are in a sad state of affairs right now. And have been ever since late May early June, when we experienced the staggering production delays that lead to our decision to shut down and sell. However, I'm an honest God-fearing person and have every intention of refunding your money. I hate having to put my customers through this mess, but have no choice in the matter. I've already issued 10k worth of refunds in the last couple months and gradually working my way down. I will be issuing your refund shortly hopefully as soon as next week. Sincerely john
If you are serious about breeding SOP silkies you may want to reconsider and start with an accepted, solid color variety. With a solid color you can concentrate on breed type only. That takes time and practice to learn.
