    Our girls are liking this cooler weather and are laying well right now.

    In this pen are 5 black hens, 2 black split lav hens and 3 splash hens; a black and a blue cock and a splash split/lav cock. It is possible to hatch a lavender, but no promises are made. One buyer believes that she did hatch a lavender from these eggs recently. All our silkies meet the standard of perfection for their variety. We will be showing some young birds this fall from them and pics of a couple them are below.

    There have been a couple of buyers who have hatched a partridge from this pen. I have absolutely no idea why as we do not raise partridge. Apparently one of the hens and one of the roos has some partridge in their genes that are, on rare occasion, coming together to make a partridge. Just want everyone to be aware so there are no issues. None of the blacks have any red or silver bleeding through their hackles so it would be difficult to pinpoint where this is coming from.

    Disclaimer: As much as I dislike having to add this, it is necessary to prevent conflict between seller and buyer. Shipped hatching eggs are a gamble. There are many unsavory things that can happen to these delicate eggs while they are in the hands of the PO. Even eggs that do not develop should not be assumed to be "infertile". We have about a 90% hatch rate from these eggs and I break eggs regularly to check for blastoderms. If you are not willing to accept the risks of hatching eggs, please do not bid on this auction. I am unable to replace eggs or issue refunds.

    Ready to ship Tuesday morning, so please be prepared to send payment by paypal immediately to [email protected]

    PLEASE DO NOT BID ON THIS AUCTION IF YOU ARE NOT READY TO SEND PAYMENT IMMEDIATELY OR IF YOU ARE NOT SERIOUS ABOUT THE PURCHASE. I AM RELISTING THESE EGGS BECAUSE MONTANAWOMAN HAS NOT CONTACTED ME OR RESPONDED TO MY PM'S SINCE WINNING THE AUCTION. EGGS ARE PERISHABLE AND CANNOT BE HELD UNTIL THE BUYER GETS AROUND TO PAYING OR RESPONDING. Sorry, I'm off my soapbox now, but irresponsible buyers are a blight on the auction process. [​IMG]

    My 100% Lavs come out chipmunk pattern like partridges! They just don't have any of the brown and red tones and their chipmunk striping is lavender. It just kind of struck me as a curious thought.......

    Your birds are beautiful and I am seriously considering....... if not now possibly in the future [​IMG]

    One buyer contacted me a couple of days ago and asked if it was possible to get a lavender from the eggs. I had not mentioned that I have a couple of split lavenders in the pen when I sent the eggs. She is 99% sure that she hatched a lavender!! YEAH!!!

    I have a nice lavender cockerel who is starting to breed now. As soon as our lavender pullet begins laying, I will put the 2 black split/lav girls in with them. Should be any day now... [​IMG]

    I'll post a pic of my chipmunk striped lavs. You may want to ask some of these folks if the babies look like them! Cause if they do, they 100% got their moneys worth and then some [​IMG]
