    This listing is for 36 assorted color eggs from my show winning bearded Silkie flock. These will ship priority on Tuesday, 9/13 because I can't ship on Monday. Now is the time to be hatching your chicks for the spring shows! Colors available are partridge, buff, blue/splash, white, black, lavender, porcelain and paint. 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, buff split to lavender or splits in various colors. The porcelains are not laying real well yet (they've been broody) so don't know how many of those eggs I can include. To see pics of the lavs and porcelains, go to this link: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=565902. The paint cockerel is in with recessive white hens and I'm currently incubating my first batch of chicks from this cross. To see pics of the cockerel go to this link: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=565902. 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. The latest winners hatched from these eggs are a splash hen owned by Bobbi & her son in Maine, (Hoppy on BYC) multiple BV winner & Jr. Show Champion & a buff hen hatched by Christine Cole who took home the Reserve Champion Bantam title at the Deschutes county fair:) Congratulations to everyone putting in the hard work of showing these birds. 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. Please do not bid if you don't intend to pay!! You can see more of my silkies at http://www.catdancesilkies.com.

    I have a lot of silkies for sale right now, so please contact me if you are looking for something. I will hold birds for shipping when the weather cooperates with advance payment. I have porcelains, whites, blacks, buffs and a few of the other colors. 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. Pick up is welcome. Thank you for understanding.

    Thank you! Hope to see you soon:) It looks like the porcelains are back to laying again as of today, so should have a decent no. to include with this auction:)

    I got mine last week and there's more developing than not. [​IMG] .Just recieved my second batch today. She packs so good that I don't think the eggs feel any bumps at all.I am really impressed that they came clear across the country ,Washington to Virignia without one cracked egg,not just once but twice!!!!!!
    Thanks you so much Karen for the time and care you put into my eggs so that they would arrive safe and sound.I will be back for more .Also recieved a GREAT assortment both times.
