    Up for your consideration are 12+ assorted color eggs from my show winning bearded Silkie bantam flock. Eggs will ship priority on Tuesday, 10/12. Colors available are partridge, buff, black, blue/splash & white if the hens continue to lay. The black pen is not laying much, so I may not have many of these. I will also include as many eggs as are laid from my porcelain/dilute project pen (at least 3). This pen has a porcelain pair in it, as well as 3 daughters of the porcelain hen. Right now, one of the hens is setting, but I'm fairly sure the porcelain hen, the porcelain cuckoo hen & the blue partridge hen (all pictured below) are laying since most days I'm getting 3 eggs. I've just candled eggs from this pen and fertility is excellent. The porcelain pair produced 3 beautiful Isabel porcelain chicks late this summer, but I do not know yet what the other hens in this pen are going to produce as far as color. Please, no color choice - I will send an assortment and always try to include eggs of each color, but cannot honor requests for just one or two colors. The flock is NPIP certified and AI tested clean. I do show my birds and have won BB at my last 2 shows as well as many BVs and RVs. A pullet hatched from a white pair I sold was recently named Grand Champion at the Wa. County Fair in Oregon. 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:) 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. Thank you for looking.

    Our eggs hatched yesterday. We got 8 out of 13, which we are very happy with. Two partridge, 2 black, 2 buff, 1 white, and 1 splash, so we got a very good assortment. Was a little bummed that the split lav didn't hatch, but I am sure we will be buying more eggs from you at some point.


    Oh, and I am [​IMG] over the porcelains! So beautiful!


    Thanks again for being such a great seller and doing such a great packing job. We had a wonderful first time buying experience here on BYC with you. [​IMG]

    Darn my incubator already has eggs going. Are you planning to sell anymore in a month or so? I tried for these last time but got outbid I think.

    Congrats on the babies Acid Chipmunk. Thank you so much for your very kind comments - it is customers like YOU and my other wonderful buyers that make it worthwhile:) I will be selling and shipping eggs as long as the hens keep laying and the weather does not get too extreme. The hens are slowing down right now and certainly don't lay as well in the winter as they do in the spring and fall, but I expect to have eggs available periodically. I will be setting most of the porcelain eggs myself, but just put ten dozen in the incubator and figured I better resist the urge to set any more!

    Do you sell just one color? If you do could you please email me when you put them up. I so love the white silkies. I have three here and they do not look anywhere near like yours. Your birds are beautiful gorgeous birds.

    I occasionally run an auction for eggs of one color, but it's not often that I have enough to fill an order. From time to time I'll post an auction of BBS for eggs from the blue splash pen & the black pen, but my blacks are barely laying right now. Karen
