    Hi guys. Im backkkk....I have not sold any split Lav silkie eggs all summer because I was really busy. But nowwww. My splits are grown and they are laying their own eggs!!! So I have a pen of 7 birds-2 roos 5 hens. They are all black Lav splits. If you hatch out a black chick then its either a split again or a pure black silkie-or you won the jackpot and have a pure lavender or two that may hatch:) I have some under my broody that are 1 1/2 weeks in and all 5 are growing..

    Your chances are as follows
    50% splits ( black)
    25% lavs ( pure lavs)
    25% pure blacks again

    I will ship out Monday the 13th-delivery confirmation included-I have never had a bad shipment-those who have bought these eggs in the past will tell you Im a packing freak ( I shipped 40+ shipments this past Winter) If any of you folks that have bought my eggs feel free to comment:) I aint skeered LOL I cannot guarantee the fertility/growth of eggs once they leave my house though:-( Shipping is always a risk...
    I have to update photos as I just built a beautiful new pen for them and DH has camera-I will get them tomorrow. In the mean time here are some photos of the birds when they were younger...They got to free-range all Summer and have been "together" for 4 weeks now-so they are very pure:)

    I kept three boys.....I'm paranoid about something tragic happening to just ONE boy, so I keep 2 extras

    It would be so boring to do all 12 of those eggs the same anyway, LOL. What else do you have thats laying right now?

    We hit a bad patch of luck last night so hopefully by next week I'll be ready to start hatching again.... Hopefully.

    Hi Nat, wanted to jump in here real quick and ask when you'll be offering these as a BIN instead of auction? We spoke a few months back and I'd still like to work something out on private sale [​IMG] I need the pure blacks too so these would be perrrrrfect. Just keep me posted hun, thanks...
