    Up for your consideration are 24+ assorted color eggs from my show winning bearded Silkie bantam flock. Eggs will ship priority on Wednesday, 3/9. I apologize for the increase in shipping fees, but with the increases in the cost of packing materials & postage, I was losing money on every shipment:( Colors available are partridge, buff, blue/splash, black & white. The flock is NPIP certified and AI tested clean. I do show my birds and in recent shows my birds won BB & RB (12/09), BB 4/10, & at my last show in October, won BV blue, BV & RV buff, BV partridge & RV white. A pullet hatched from a white pair I sold was the show champion fowl at the Wa. County Fair in Oregon this summer. Congratulations to Sandy at Bat Cave Silkies for winning BV and RV with her partridge she hatched from these eggs, as well as Judy at Three Cedar Silkies, who recently took RV with a black pullet she hatched in June. 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 be prepared to pay via paypal at auction's end - no e-checks please as they take too long to clear. You can see more of my silkies at http://www.catdancesilkies.com.

    If the buyer paid the extra cost could the shipping be upgraded to something faster? Is it possible to overnight eggs? Sorry if that's a silly question but I'm expecting other eggs and I'd like to set them all at the same time.

    Thanks!

    I could certainly send them out express, but not sure they would get there any faster. PM me with your zip code and I can check on the timing & cost from here to your location. Thanks for your interest!

    I try to send an even amount from each color with the shipments - I'm planning on sending out 3 dozen to the winner of this auction.
