    Hey guys, these birds are top notch. I exhibited for the first time at the Spring show in Stevenson, WA and was lucky enough to meet Karen and see her beautiful birds. She got BOB with one of her silkies. She had a really nice partridge hen there too, very typey. Nice splashes, whites, buffs. I guess I don't understand why such good stock is not being snapped up??

    I bought two dozen eggs from her at the show, and have been pleased with them. They were quite fertile and I hatched some nice chicks, which are about a week old right now.

    Any chance you could ship only blue, black, splash, and white hatching eggs?

    Thanks for the compliment Jennifer. Hope to see you in October at the Stevenson show & glad to hear your chicks are doing well! I could ship BBS & W only so long as my hens cooperate - should not be a problem though. Karen

    If you are a serious silkie breeder you should not let these eggs get by you. Beautiful birds and awesome breeder! Thanks for everything, Karen. I'll be candling in the next couple of days [​IMG]

    I would also love to have only b/b/s and white but if that's not possible I understand. I know how broody these little buggers can be! [​IMG]

    You guys are really missing out on her partridge and buffs. I tell you, the partridge hen she exhibited was *very* nice, so typey, so fluffy, no hard feathers, good foot feathering. Her buffs were very nice, although Calesta (another exhibitor) has a really nice buff hen that is hard to beat.

    Another person to bug for nice silkies is AmyJo Piehl, she goes by destiny (followed by some crazy number I can never remember) on here. I purchased some very young stock in the fall from her, which were not what she considered show quality, and took them to the NWPA show in Stevenson as well as the RMPA show in Montana and earned; reserve of variety at Stevenson with a young white cockerel, 1st black pullet and at the MT show reserve of breed under both judges (it was a double show, one judge was Gary Overton who has judged silkie national) with black pullets.

    I got some chicks from AmyJo this spring, and am quite pleased.

    Thank you for the suggestions! I'm interested in showing Silkies in the future, and I want to stick with the B/B/S and white for the time being...who knows, I might get crazy later on?! [​IMG]

    I am interested in raising b/b/s and white. I think partridge and buff and beautiful but I am limited in space and with b/b/s & w only have to have two separate pens.
