    Up for your consideration are 24+ assorted color eggs from my show winning bearded Silkie bantam flock. Eggs will ship priority on Monday, 3/14. 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. I will also include anything that is laid prior to shipment from my lavender project pen if the buyer wants them. This pen has 2 lavender cockerels over lav split and porcelain girls. If you've been palnning on getting some eggs soon, this is probably the time as the girls all seem to be going broody at once and laying has slowed to a trickle. 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.

    With 24 eggs, would this mean about 5 of each color? And could I request certain colors? Thanks, Nikki

    I'm hoping to send out 3 dozen to the winner of this auction & it will be, hopefully, an even mix of all the colors available so long as the hens keep laying. In some cases, I may have a few more of one color than another. I can't honor requests for just a few colors or I would not have enough eggs to send - I just don't have any control over what the girls do:) Thanks for your interest. Karen
