    I will not be hatching until after the Shawnee, OK show so all eggs will be available.

    NOTE: Paint Silkies DO NOT breed true. You can hatch a range of colors including but not limited to: Paint, Blue, Black, Partridge, Gray, Champagne, White, etc. You will hatch silkies and showgirls.

    These will ship out on Monday the 28th! If for some reason the girls go broody, I will ship in two different orders. Silkies are notorious for going broody. If you are not okay with this, please do not bid.

    If I get more than 24 I will include extras!!

    I will pack them extremely well, but will not be responsible for any damage occurred during shipping. Priority mail has been running beyond 3 days, so if you want a guarantee you can ship by express mail for an additional charge. I use heavy duty boxes, bubble wrap and lots of newspaper to stabilize them. Hatching eggs are a gamble! Please consider that before bidding. The PO can be rough on packages and have been known to scramble a lot of eggs.

    These babies are strong, healthy and hatch extremely well. I have 3 Paint Silkie hens, 2 Showgirl hens (with the black feather), 2 black hens, 1 blue partridge, 1 buff and 1 blue girl in this pen.

    This showgirl does have a black feather. I have her sister in this pen also, they look a lot alike and both have one black feather. They have produced some really nice showgirl babies.

    I will also have quite a few paint babies for sale. I have a pinched nerve but as soon as I can bend over I will get pics if anyone is interested.

    Well, this year I have decided to change my religion [​IMG] I am going to receive gifts but not give any. My kids didn't think that was as funny as I thought it was.
