    I can still ship today if paid before 3pm cst
    [​IMG] Up for auction are 22+ White Showgirl hatching eggs plus extras that may be layed before I package them up. [​IMG] [​IMG]
    They are very nice birds. The photos speak for themselves.
    You will get both showgirl AND silkies from the showgirl eggs.

    I can't say they are show quality because I do not show my birds but you won't be disappointed.

    This is a Buy IT Now Auction so please don't forget to click on the Buy It Now button so you don't miss out

    Please keep in mind I need time to package them up and get to the post office. Thanks for understanding.

    ill ship Wednesday if bought and paid for by 9 AM Wednesday morning. I need time to package them up. I will be leaving for the day so won't be able to ship any later then that. Will ship Thursday if bought and paid by 2PM Thursday. Thanks for your understanding.

    PayPal only please. Paypal to [email protected]

    $49.00 total shipping included.

    OR $50.75 if you want the package insured for lost package.(does not cover damaged, cracked eggs (per PO)



    Due to variations in incubators and hatching practices I cannot guarantee your hatch rate and of course I have no control over the Postal service and cannot guarantee that they won't scramble them. I am not responsible for lost or misdirected mail, but on this end I know my small town postal service handles my eggs with kid gloves If you want insurance there will be an additional charge of $1.75. This would only cover lost package, not damage, cracked eggs etc.
    Due to temperature variation between the cold & heat I am packing the eggs in a styrofoam lined box for no additional charge.

    If you are the winning bidder at auctions end please let me know if you want insurance, and if you want your phone number written on the box for the PO to hold for pickup. And don't forget to include your phone number please.

    Thanks Much and good luck !!

    The Rooster is the one in the top picture in the background. They are basically a silke crossed with a necked neck chicken (Turken) several generations back resulting in the showgirl The roos are also called showgirls !!! LOL

    Yes they come in different colors. I have partridge but they are not laying right now. They come in any color that silkies come in but white is the most common and I think most common.

    I will be listing another auction with white silkies, splash silkies and partridge silkies. There is a partridge showgirl hen in the pen with the partridge roo and two hens so would be possible to get a partridge showgirl from that pen.

    Try em, You'll like em !!

    Quote:Hey Pam,

    Well, just like most silkies you have to wait but you will notice, at least I have, that the roos crest will slick back a bit and tends to be a bit smaller on my showgirl roos then the hens. Also you will see their combs will start becoming larger in the roos. Also their wattles will become larger in the roos. I'd give it another month and you should start to see some differences, unless of course you have all roos, or all hens [​IMG]

    I forgot, how many showgirls did you hatch out?

    Glad you like them. I know I am addicted to them little buggers [​IMG]

    ps See on the picture, the hens have basically no wattles and their crest feathers grow straight up?

    First time I laid eyes on a Showgirl I said, "Why would someone do that to a Silkie"......A few years later I received one as a gift and since have grown very fond of them, so much so I am added more to my collection, breeding and raising them. [​IMG] Nice lookin' girls in your pics!
