    6+ Silkied Bantam Cochin Eggs in Barred and Black varieties. A few years ago I had a barred pullet hatch out silkied. It has taken me 3 year to produce these silkied cochins, since the "gene for silkie feathering" is recessive. I have 2 silkied barred roos over barred & black silkied cochin hen and also black cochin hens split to "silkied". So some chicks may hatch out normal feathered but they will carry the gene for "silkie feathering".
    I bubble wrap each eggs and then place them in a egg carton which is securely packed in a #7 Priority Mail box. Box will be marked FRAGILE. I think the larger box offers good protection and rarely have damages but, I DO NOT guarantee hatch-ability due to shipping and your incubation methods. Handling & Shipping(Priority Mail) $11.00...Please pay by Paypal after auction ends so that I can ship the eggs quickly. If you want me to send you a PayPal invoice you need to email or pm me your email address . NPIP # 64-1039 & US AI clean. Let me know if you need NPIP paperwork with the eggs. Check my other auctions . I will combine shipping when possible, but cannot hold eggs over to ship with another auction ending several days later, I want you to have freshest eggs possible. Thanks for looking ! Shipping only in U.S.

    Payment is by PayPal to [email protected]

    These have not been crossed to the breed of Silkies if that is what you are wondering. No 4/5th toes, no black silkie skin, no walnut combs. These are cochins with silkied feathers.

    They are beautiful birds, and all cochin. I got 2 silkied cochins and one non silkied carrier out of eggs bought from Swheat last year.

    Their feet are normal cochin feet, and comb red, they are all cochin, not a bit of silkie in them. Even non silkied are high quality, mine is super fluffy and round.
