    Up for your consideration are 12+ assorted color eggs from my show winning bearded Silkie bantam flock. Eggs will ship priority on Monday, 10/25. Colors available are partridge, buff, black, blue/splash & white. I will also include as many eggs as are laid from my porcelain/dilute project pen if the buyer wants them (at least 4). 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 & I've just hatched a big group of beautiful chicks from this group. I will get some pics & get them posted before the end of the auction (probably tomorrow). 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.

    to let you know, catdance, the eggs we got from you are all done hatching. none of the blue splash developed at all. we're not going to hatch more right now but in the future i will let you know when i would like to get some blue splash eggs and try again.

    I took a few pics of the babies as promised - it's pretty hard to tell how they are going to feather out at this point, but I'm very pleased with the quality of these chicks. It looks like there are isabelle porcelains, partridge, & some porcelain cuckoos.
