    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. I don't have enough hens to ask for just one of any of these colors.

    These will be shipped the week of September 12 if payment is received in a timely fashion and hens are laying as they are at this posting..

    The fascination and love of silkies came recently to the farm as we hatched out our first silkies in 2010. It is now a total obsession. And we 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! 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 loved them as pets!

    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:

    Here are several of our adults before separated into breeding areas:

    The 12+ means I will include extra eggs if available.

    The shipping is average 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 the incubators temperature and humidity are very variable.We will provide assistance to you during the hatch and help in every way possible to have the best hatch possible.

    If you live in Hawaii and want to know the price, please contact me as Hawaii as higher shipping rates and the average based rates do not apply.

    If you want a ice pack I can add one but it will add to the cost of the shipping and handling both for the purchase of the pack AND the extra heat.

    Payment for this listing will need to be through Paypal in order to ship on time! No echecks please as this delays shipment.
    If you also want to place an order for silkie eggs, please just pm me.
    Paypal address is [email protected]

    Please check out our feedback in the old system.

    Many of you have asked how we pack and please look at our BYC page which describes it:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=8875

    The Garry Farm has spent a lot of time developing this system and you are welcome to use the techniques as described, but please if you copy the pictures or writing please reference as your source.

    Also some have written and asked about cold packs. I do have cold packs. I will need to add some to the costs and some to the packing fee as these do cost me money and do add weight to the package.

    Please let me know if there are any more questions and thanks! Have a blessed day. Nancy
