Rainplace has them smile I would love to have some! They look so pretty! The eggs are EXTREMELY hard to incubate though I hear. I know a few others on here have them as well, hope they show up for you smile

I have a black, snowy, and mallard.  I hatched all three luckily!

It's supposed to be a challenge, that's why they call it a shortcut. If it was easy it would just be the way.

Interesting! Why would the eggs be harder to incubate? From what I understand Calls are harder cos they got the wee little bills - is there a reason for the silkies hatching difficult? --I'm not being a smartaleck, I'm new and don't know stuff! hu

The exact reason is not known.  The eggs seem to develop well but then things go wrong at hatch.  Some think it's a humidity issue, but as far as I know this has not bee substantiated.  Natural incubation tends to get much better results.
