    Never heard about them but I'll take a look at it to see what breeds they have to sell.

    They also raised and showed Porcelain d'Uccles too. I am not sure if they are still continuing with poultry but it has been a long time since I saw their website.

    Yes, I have. I got splash, buff & white silkie eggs from them last year. Hatched out a gorgeous splash hen, trio of whites, and 1 buff hen. Also got eggs from them this year and ended up with 2 nice splash. I LOVE the splash hen I hatched out last year from them. Beautiful bird!!

    Here is one of the whites I hatched out. She was about 6 months in the picture. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    My avatar is a young Silkie pullet that I purchased from Shagbark. She gets better every day and has the best personality. I also purchased a couple black/lav roos from them, they are all very typie and healthy. I was also fortunate enough to purchase a Lavender breeding trio from them, which I'm picking up next week while in Ohio. They are always available to answer my million questions, and are very knowledgeable. I'll continue buying from them, their birds are beautiful;) Hope this helps!
