    This auction listing is for 18 assorted color eggs from my show winning bearded Silkie bantam flock. I will ship these priority on Tuesday, 1/3. (the post office is closed on Monday). I am going to be posting 2 other auctions and can combine shipping on TWO of them if someone wants more eggs. Colors to be included to the extent possible (depending on the hens) are partridge, buff, white, black, blue/splash, lavender, porcelain AND paint. The girls in the blue/splash pen are going broody, so may not have any of these eggs to include. The lav project pen has 2 lavender cockerels with lav split and porcelain hens as well as one non-split buff hen so you could get lavender, porcelain, buff split to lavender or splits in various colors, including calico. To see some pics of the lavs and porcelains, go to this link: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=521456. Pics of the paints are here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=593452. I try to send equal numbers of each color, but it really depends on the hens:) The flock is NPIP certified and AI tested clean. I do show my birds on a limited basis and in recent shows my birds won BB & RB (12/09), BB 4/10, BV blue, BV & RV buff, BV partridge & RV white in October 2010 and in April, at the Western Silkie Nationals, I placed Reserve Champion Silkie with a white pullet, Champion & reserve Champion trios (whites), RV splash, BV & RV partridge:). Hopefully I can get some pics from this show posted for coming auctions. Congratulations to Sandy at Bat Cave Silkies for winning BV and RV with her partridge she hatched from these eggs, Judy at Three Cedar Silkies, who recently took RV with a black pullet she hatched last June and Vanessa, who took home the Best of Breed win with a splash pullet at the Marietta, Ohio show this spring. The latest winners hatched from these eggs are a splash hen owned by Bobbi & her son in Maine, (Hoppy on BYC) multiple BV winner & Jr. Show Champion (twice!), a buff hen hatched by Christine Cole who took home the Reserve Champion Bantam title at the Deschutes county fair, and a splash hen owned by Christina in Illinois who recently took home the Reserve of Breed award in the Junior Silkie show:) Congratulations to everyone putting in the hard work of showing these birds. I've been getting some really nice chicks from these groups and all the birds pictured were hatched from the same breeding flocks your eggs will come from. My breeding silkies are 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:) I cannot guarantee your hatch rate, but I will do everything in my power to get your eggs to you in good shape.
    PLEASE: Payment is due via paypal at auction's end - no e-checks please as they take too long to clear. Paypal to [email protected] and please email or pm me with your shipping address and a phone no. for the box if you want to pick up your eggs at the po. You can see more of my silkies at http://www.catdancesilkies.com.

    I have 18 Kelar eggs that went into lockdown tonight. They all look GREAT and I am hoping for a super New Years Day hatch. Beautiful birds!

    Thanks everyone for your very nice comments. I'm always happy to hear about people getting nice chicks:) Silkielover - I am sorry, but I am not able to honor color requests for these auctions. I can only send what the hens lay & in order to make sure the winners of all the auctions get a variety, that is what I send to each person. I occasionally have auctions for just one or two colors, but the hens are not laying enough right now to do that. I'm sure you will find folks who want the buff and partridge chicks if you win:)

    I have also had great luck with Karen's eggs. Also, it seems shipping between the Pac NW & Texas works out ok for shipped eggs. I've purchased eggs from TX and had them arrive in 2 days and in great shape. I'll get some pics pretty soon. I love the beautiful colors.
