    All The Garry Farm breeder silkies are crested, bearded, blue ear lobes, black skin, 5 toes. Our birds are separated by color, you will probably get white, black, blue, splash,and also some partridges. Based on current laying patterns the majority of eggs received will be White but you will get some from all the other pens and I do expect that there will be more than 12 eggs available. Our flock is largely from Mbrobbins here on BYC, but also has silkies from other BYC'ers and others who have award winning birds. Although all our breeders are show quality, not pet quality, I cannot guarantee that you will only get show winners, but it certainly helps when you have a winners gene pool working for you...

    These will be shipped the week of 10/31, assuming no change in laying patterns and prompt payment.

    The fascination and love of silkies came recently to the farm as we hatched out our first silkies in 2010. And have been continually hatching since then!

    We're enchanted by the characteristics of the silkies - naturally inquisitive, very friendly and responsive to both voice and sounds! I love to just sit with them and feed them treats. They really respond to affection and are really a fun pet for persons of all ages.Friendly and inquisitive, they are the epitome of the "pet Chicken" and love to be held and petted and even rocked. After loving them, I can surely see why emperors treasured them as pets and had the cooks prepare special treats for them.

    When we sell these, we sell out of these baby chicks before they are listed for 3 days! and yes we are saving some of the best for our Farm such as this one:

    Love this splash gal who is still growing, she gets up the edge and wants to get in the camera - haven't named her - up for nominations - maybe splashy star!

    The 10+ means I will include extra eggs if available.

    Here are some recent hatched of our eggs by DWEGG who was kind enough to send photos. And please if any of you have any baby photos we may share of these or our other eggs, please share them with me!!! Thanks DWEGG again and here are his babies:

    The shipping is average cost based on our shipping rates. We ship eggs in the same way we would like to receive them. We bubble wrap each egg separately, putting in a regular box (not an egg carton) which is then cushioned and set in a larger box. These are not the prepaid priority boxes but we use the large boxes that can be ordered through USPS as the standard mailing box. Our mailing costs can often be higher than the prepaid boxes but we find that they arrive in better shape, so it's well worth the extra time, packing materials and shipping costs. Occasionally with a large order, we will use an even larger outside box. After carefully preparing you package we drive your eggs to the Post Office, where our local post office sets the egg shipments to the side to protect them. They are then placed on the truck on the top of all the other boxes! Even as carefully as we ship, we cannot guarantee that there will be no breakage in transit. We do not guarantee the percentage of your hatch as many factors such as the incubators temperature and humidity, etc are very variable. We will provide assistance to you during the hatch and help in every way possible to have the best hatch possible. Shipping will be higher if shipping to Hawaii!

    Payment for this listing will need to be through Paypal in order to ship on time!

    Many have asked for more of our shipping details.

    Please see my page:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=8875

    Feel free to use the technique, but please if you use the photos or the narrative, give credit to The Garry Farm as we've tried numerous ways of shipping until we settled on this one based upon successful outcomes.

    We pack as if lives depend upon it, BECAUSE they do.
