    This BIN listing is for at least 30 assorted color eggs from my show winning bearded Silkie bantam flock. I will ship all the eggs I have on Wednesday, 8/3 or Thursday, 8/4, depending on when this auction ends. This is my last shipment this week and absolutely no color choice on these. Most of the eggs from my white and partridge pens, but there are also a few of the other colors including eggs from the lavender project pen. There are no porcelains unless something is laid today. The lav project pen has 2 lavender cockerels with lav split and porcelain hens as well as one non-split buff hen, so you could get lavender, porcelain, splits, or buff split to lavender. I also get a partridge chick from this pen from time to time. I have a lot of eggs from this pen & the white pens right now. To see pics of the lavs and porcelains, go to this link: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=521456. I try to send equal numbers of each color, but it really depends on the hens:) The flock is NPIP certified and AI tested clean. I do show my birds on a limited basis and in recent shows my birds won BB & RB (12/09), BB 4/10, BV blue, BV & RV buff, BV partridge & RV white in October 2010 and in April, at the Western Silkie Nationals, I placed Reserve Champion Silkie with a white pullet, Champion & reserve Champion trios (whites), RV splash, BV & RV partridge:). Hopefully I can get some pics from this show posted for coming auctions. Congratulations to Sandy at Bat Cave Silkies for winning BV and RV with her partridge she hatched from these eggs, Judy at Three Cedar Silkies, who recently took RV with a black pullet she hatched last June and Vanessa, who took home the Best of Breed win with a splash pullet at the Marietta, Ohio show this spring. 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. Paypal to [email protected] and please include your phone no. for the box if you want to pick up your eggs at the po. You can see more of my silkies at http://www.catdancesilkies.com.

    A few people have asked about including ice packs because of the heat and I am happy to do that, but there is an additonal $5 charge to cover the cost of the ice packs and the extra shipping weight. Please let me know if this is something you would like to do.

    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.

    Just wanted to say that I bought eggs from Kelar last week. She shipped from Washington to Florida. The eggs were so well packed, none broke. I just candled at day 3 and 80% of the eggs show growth. I only purchased 18 eggs and she sent extra so if I base it on the eggs I actually purchased it would be 105% (19 are developing). And that number might even go up, as day 3 candling is very early!

    I highly recommend! [​IMG]
