    Up for auction: 12 eggs from my original 'fluffy' male (hatched from Jubaby's eggs) and his "cousin" F1 crosses.

    We ship flat rate priority ($15) or regional flat rate ($9) if available based on your zip code.

    Eggs will ship on 7/5 (Tuesday) so payment needs to be made at the end of the auction. Paypal only please.

    We ship flat rate priority ($15), or regional ($9ish) if available based on your zip code, plus a 3$ fee for materials (bubble wrap, packing peanuts, etc).

    Please also note that even as carefully as your eggs will be shipped, we cannot guarantee that there will be no breakage in transit. We also cannot guarantee the percentage of your hatch as the incubators temperature and humidity are very variable.

    Please note - these are not Ameraucana/Silkie/EE crosses. Jubaby hatched these unique birds from pure Ameraucana eggs and I in turn, hatched mine from her stock. Somewhere, very far back in these birds' genetics, they ended up being carriers for h (hookless), the same gene responsible for the feathers on Silkies. These birds that Jubaby, myself, and a handful of others have hatched retain their hookless feathers while having none of the other Silkie traits (black skin, extra toes, vaulted skulls). They appear, with exception to their feathers, to be normal pure Ameraucanas. This is what makes these birds so unique, and such a pleasure to raise.

    I have paired my 'fluffy' male with his blue "cousins" (fluffy/pure F1 crosses) that Kathyinmo hatched. You will get 50% fluffy chicks from this hatch, which should come out to 50% blue and 50% splash. The remaining 50% smooth feathered chicks will be carriers.

    For more information on these birds, please see the What's wrong with their feathers? thread.

    Thanks and Happy Bidding!!

    There will be more of these available, finally! What an arduous project this has been for everyone. I have a few F1s laying now and an F2 laying, so hopefully it will become more accessible for all of the folks who want these.

    Yay! [​IMG]
