    These eggs are from a recent BBS pen I've set up. I just had a splash roo in with the girls for a while and fertility was pretty low, but I've now added a very nice blue cockerel and hope I'm getting more fertile eggs. I really hate to throw these away - the chicks I've hatched from this pen have been just gorgeous. You could hatch blue, black or splash and some of my best black, blue and splash show hens are in this pen. Anyone want to take a chance and give these a try? I'll ship priority on Thursday, July 7th and the eggs should arrive by Saturday. The flock is NPIP certified and AI tested clean. 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 be prepared to pay via paypal at auction's end - no e-checks please as they take too long to clear. Paypal to [email protected]. You can see more of my silkies at http://www.catdancesilkies.com. (Sorry, I didn't hae time to change photos for this auction, but you can get an idea of the quality of the birds I'm raising).

    I have a lot of silkies for sale right now, so please contact me if you are looking for something. PLEASE - serious inquiries only as it takes a lot of time to get birds photographed and I have very little spare time right now. I can ship, but only if the weather allows (it is too hot here right now). Pick up is welcome. Thank you for understanding.

    Yes, I'm continuing to get eggs from this pen & would just like to hear back about fertility rate & hatch results. PM or email if interested.

    The Silkie is a true bantam and weighs about 2 lbs full grown. I believe there is a LF silkie in Europe, but as far as I know, there are none in the US.
