    My hens gave me another 4 dozen eggs today, so more eggs are looking for a home. Shipment will go out on Tuesday, July 12th, and will include 48 assorted color eggs from my show winning bearded Silkie bantam flock. Colors available are partridge, buff, blue/splash, black, lavender & white. No eggs from the straight porcelain pen are available for this auction as only one hen is laying and I've already promised those eggs. 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 lavs, splits, buff split to lav or porcelains from these eggs. 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 just last weekend, showed at the Western Silkie Nationals, placing 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 in June and Vanessa, who took home the Best of Breed win with a splash pullet at the Marietta, Ohio show last month. 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 when you order your eggs - no e-checks please as they take too long to clear. Paypal is [email protected]. 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. 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.
