    Hi-
    This is my first time selling hatching eggs to be shipped but, I have ordered many eggs and know how to pack them safely for shipment. I will mark boxes "fragile" and "live embryos" but, please let me know if you would like anything else included.

    Eggs are $10 for 6+ and $15 shipping.

    I have a calico rooster over a buff hen. I will collect eggs Saturday - Monday and ship them out on Monday - Tuesday. Fertility has been checked and proven.

    Edited: Added pictures of babies that hatched from my calico/buffs on 14 Feb 14. Also, eggs will now have a chance of hatching showgirls. I have one black showgirl hen in with my group and I think she has started laying so I want to put that warning out there.

    Those who pay first will get first choice of which week the eggs will be shipped.

    The following dates are available:

    Feb 24/25 - pjwood67
    Mar 3/4 - Cloudseeker
    Mar 10/11 - Pending (Outside buyer)
    Mar 17/18 - Kamiki
    Mar 24/25
    Mar 31/Apr 1

    Please post a reply to this thread with your interest, as well as send me a pm with which week you prefer for shipment. I will confirm and once payment (PayPal) has been recieved, I will put your name by your shipment date.

    I was actually working on that :) I will have to take some more when i get home this evening, that are better than the ones I have. Cause the rooster is much more filled out now. My apologies but, they are coming.

    Sorry for my ignorance, but I'm not sure how Silkie genetics work - what are the chances of the babies being calico?

    I'm not exactly sure either but, I know to that the proper breeding color is to breed to a buff or red. I hatched out 5 chicks on Friday and all look to have the calico pattern except for one who looks like it might be a buff. Sorry, I don't have a better answer.
