8+ Bearded BBS Silkie Eggs - NPIP

Discussion in 'Buy Sell Auction - Archives' started by Three Cedars Silkies, Jul 5, 2010.

  1. Up for your consideration are 8+ eggs for our blue/black/splash pen.

    In the BBS pen are 11 girls...black and splash...and we rotate 4 boys in with them. One is a nice blue cock (he just graduated after his birthday this month [​IMG] ), a black cock, a splash cock and a gorgeous splash/lav split cockerel that we got from Shagbark silkies a few months ago as a young bird. Don't know for sure if he is completing the deed, but he is giving it his all!! Update: I received an email from someone who just hatched some eggs from this pen and she believes she hatched one or two lavender. Two of the black girls are also split lavenders, but I don't want to make any promises on what you will hatch. Just passing on the information... [​IMG] Looks like the splash boy is getting the job done!!

    I will say that this year has been HELL on shipping. You should definitely not get any cracked eggs but it seems that the ones I've received have had a lot of aircell damage. However, we have hatched quite a few from those eggs with loose aircells, so don't give up hope on them! I even hatched a lavender chick from an egg that I received cracked and then patched with wax! I have been using the styrofoam shippers but I'm going to use USPS priority boxes for a while and see if that makes any difference. There was some concerned mentioned that the shippers are so airtight that it might not be good for the eggs. They will be packed the same...just a different box. Pick ups are welcome!

    ***Edited to clarify negative feedback left by aduplantis. Buyer purchased eggs and did not respond to PM's or emails for 48 hours after sale ended. Eggs were sold to underbidder. Two days later, buyer sent payment for eggs which was promptly refunded and explanation was given. Newbie or not...when you make a purchase of EGGS, for goodness sakes...make a prompt payment. Eggs are perishable!!***

    You will not be disappointed in these eggs, I was sent a dozen + eggs and ended up with a pair of blues, trio of blacks and a pair of splash. They are gorgeous and great quality!! Everyone that comes here to buy chickens wants them and I've been offered quite a bit for them. The blacks are darker than any I've ever seen.

    They are BEAUTIFUL! When my daughter comes home from camp, she definitely wants to start showing silkies and we happen to live in Gainesville.

    Talk about lucky! [​IMG]
  5. Quote:Awesome!! You must bring her out to meet everyone!! Let me know...
  6. Quote:Yes, we will. I have some more lavender eggs on their way and that is all I will hatch for the rest of this summer, so I will be offering whatever the girls give us.
