    Don't miss your chance on these eggs!! The parents have BLACK skin! No Pink! Cuckoo is still a developing color. The pair in the pictures are 8 months old and i've only been on Ebay with them. Out of 9 shipments I've had 85- 100% hatch rate. So these eggs are fertile! I will only be doing a few more shipments this year. I have only one egg and usually get one a day from them. I will collect all 6 then if I have any extra's i will put them in. Both the parents have nice toe seperation. This par has won many blue ribbons and got the title best in show at a local fair. In the pics there "poofs" arn't as nice as usually only because they had to be penned with my layers earlier this month. There were only layers in the pen, no other roo's except the Cuckoo Silkie
    Located in Maine.

    Don't miss your chance on these eggs!

    I don't think LLFarm has figured out pics yet. Here is a little help. I just clicked on the items image and figured out the broken link.

    Below are L.L. Farm pics -
