    This not an auction. One set price of $27.00 includes shipping.
    I have 3 pens still laying right now and would like to get them to somebody that would like to hatch themselves some silkies. I have shipping dates you can pick from on most #4. As long as the girls are still laying at the end of Feb i'll add more dates. Get your eggs before spring because the price goes up.
    My silkies are divided in separate pens by color. I have 1 blue partridge hen and 2 partridge hens with lots of gold on them with a blue partridge roo. The bbs pen has 2 black, 1 splash and 1 blue. Only the splash and black hens are laying. There is a blue roo in with them. The white pen is just that white hens and white roo.

    A black hen and blue partridge hen won BV in their first show back in sept. My best ones that put out the best chicks are the black hens, splash hen and white hens. In the spring I will not have any blue silkies.

    This auction is for what is laid in 3 or 4 days from all the pens. The price includes shipping. Alaska and the Islands will be charged more for shipping. Alaska will have to be overnighted. Last time I sent there it was nearly $30.00.

    I bubble wrap each egg and place in a carton with the top cut off. I place the top back on and make sure it fits snug but not too tight and tape it in place. The cartons nest in shredded paper and have shredded paper on top so they don't get jostled about. I set the eggs air cell up to try to protect the aircells as much as possible. I ship priority with a DC#. The eggs will go to the post office on their ship date unless I feel not enough eggs where laid. Then I will contact the buyer about how many I have to send. I will give a refund if this happens and the buyer doesn't want the amount that is available on their ship date. If that where to happen I would contact the next person in line, so on and so on. Also if this where to happen the original person what was to get eggs will move to the space of the person that accepted the eggs.
    I have no sizzles available. Most of the sizzle hens are on vacation living it up in my addition, warming themselves under a heat lamp and eating all the good stuff. I do have 2 that lay from time to time but they are first timers and haven't gotten their "groove" on yet. lol

    The 2 started laying then slowed down again. If your interested in any sizzle eggs please contact me to see how they're laying at the time. The two in question are the silver laced grey - Noel 13 mos old and Goldie the gold laced that is a pullet at about 9 months old.


    Ok, enuf chic chat, on to the business at hand.

    I expect payment immediately to paypal when you request your ship date. My paypal is [email protected] I will accept money order as long as it will arrive before your shipping due date. PM me and i'll give you my information. No checks please.
    This "BUY IT NOW"will end on February 13th. Payment must be made no later than the night before the eggs are due to go to the post office. Any later and the eggs will be delayed. Contact me if your having a problem. I'm easy to work with.

    Something I was just taught is to make sure of what time the auction ends then make a bid at the last few seconds..
    Like sniping on eBay... :)

    This is a buy it now. One set price including shipping. I can offer a waiting list if you all are interested. I got many PM's with questions and all want the eggs. I normally ship twice a week. If anybody is interested in picking a shipping date I'll post some dates and you can pic the date you want yours shipped. Just keep in mind, they're silkies. They are unreliable layers. I will collect from all pens and every egg will get shipped. I have no plans to hatch anymore for a few months.

    I noticed in your post you will not have blue silkies available in the spring. Will there possibly be eggs from the blue silkies on this pre-order?

    The blue hen had been broody. I haven't seen her on the nest since. I doubt there will be any blue silkies unless the splash hen and blue roo produce some. Only the black and splash hens are laying in the bbs pen. If the blue hen takes a mind to lay an egg hopefully it will be soon and i'll post when I see her on a nest gain.

    When I have my spring sale around March and April I will be selling all the blue silkies I have including the roo and hen.

    If the blue hen starts to lay sometime this month, somebody will get the eggs. I'm not hatching any eggs right now.

    Sorry to be confused, but what are the colors that you think you are going to have available on the eggs?

    All 3 partridge hens are laying. I have 1 blue partridge hen and 2 gold or buff partridge hens, both white hens are laying and a black and a splash are laying. Out of the partridge, the 2 gold or buff hens produce nearly buff chicks with dark wing tips and tails and sometimes crests. The blue partridge will produce blue partridge or sometimes they have more gold and look more like gold partridge.
