    Up for your consideration are 12+ assorted color eggs from my show winning bearded Silkie bantam flock. Eggs will ship priority on Tuesday, 2/22, since Monday is a holiday. Colors available are partridge, buff, blue/splash & white. The blacks are laying, but fertility was disappointing last week, but I expect it to kick in any time now! I will include blacks if my latest batch is showing development before shipping the eggs. The flock is NPIP certified and AI tested clean. I do show my birds and in recent shows my birds won BB & RB (12/09), BB 4/10, & at my last show in October, won BV blue, BV & RV buff, BV partridge & RV white. A pullet hatched from a white pair I sold was the show champion fowl at the Wa. County Fair in Oregon this summer. I've been getting some really nice chicks this year and all the birds pictured were hatched from the same breeding flocks your eggs will come from. The silkies in my breeding flocks are all carefully chosen for their own individual merits and even more importantly, their ability to produce quality offspring. I do pack eggs extremely well and my customers are reporting good success. A lot of my customers are returning for more eggs, which makes me very happy:) I cannot guarantee your hatch rate, but I will do everything in my power to get your eggs to you in good shape. Please be prepared to pay via paypal at auction's end - no e-checks please as they take too long to clear. You can see more of my silkies at http://www.catdancesilkies.com.

    how many will you give of each color or will it just be whatever lays?

    I always try to send an even amount of each color in the shipments. As a rule, if I have more of one color or can't send a color, I will state it in the auction. Not sure about sending blacks for this auction as I won't send unless I have very good fertility, but should have plenty of the other colors to send.
