update on egg numbers: there are 7 paint eggs and I will fill the box the with how ever many fit of the sizzle eggs. my birds don't lay in the morning so this is your total. these eggs will be from my pen of silkies that has a 2x best in JR show splash silkie, 1 blue partridge and 1 blue best of breed winner with a paint silkie roo. all are bearded. This roo is a paint to black breeding. I will also include bonus eggs (these will all be marked) from my sizzle pen. this pen has splash sizzles that throw white with blue patched babies (not going to call these paint) and the roo from this pen is a very slightly marked (paint??)he only has about 3 black feathers so these will be bonus eggs. splash hen paint roo ( he hides most of his spots under his wings (post 7 shows his father and mother, thanks jen for posting it) blue partridge hen blue hen BB I'll post a few pictures of the white patched babies from the bonus pen tomorrow. this is the white very mildly spotted roo from my sizzle pen. he has one spot on his back and 1 on top of his head and one on his hackle but truely, 2 feathers on the back and one on the hackle and head. and he is white white, that buff that anyone might think they are seeing, is white. this is one of the sizzle babies from this male and his splash mom sizzle mom- while she looks blue, she does have 2 or 3 black feathers. I pack eggs well but I can't be responsible for what the PO does after they leave my hands. fertility has been checked and is very good. eggs will be shipped on monday as long as payment has arrived. (paypal please) I'm updating this first page since there is some confusion of where the splash won, who owns the birds etc http://www.centralmainebirdfanciers.org/CMBF_Fall_Show_2011_Results.htm and the northern new england bird fanciers 2011 fall show. the splash was shown at both of those shows by my son who is 10 in the jr show. he can't post in the BSA so I am. these are his birds, he takes care of them, preps them for show, also competes in jr showmanship and does very well. He uses the money he gets from selling chicks to buy better birds. We do not ship birds at this time. The sizzles are my birds, I am adult, I also take care of the sizzles and sell them as sizzles, or non frizzled sizzles but NOT as silkies because they have frizzle in the backround even if they look like silkies. I can't control what anyone does with their birds once they own them, that is up to them to decide if they want to breed them or just get eggs, or use the birds to hatch eggs from other chickens. I do counsel them about what makes this a good quality bird or what makes it a pet but I refuse to kill a bird because it has a non life threatening color mark, or extra toe, or non bearded. I just plan better for the next breeding and maybe that hen or roo is taken out of the breeding program. we all have them, it's all in what you do with them.
