    I live in the southeast corner of New Mexico. I can't find any true silkies around here, but they are by far my favorite. I have purchased many eggs by mail and have not had very good luck with the hatches. All the packages have had to come from very far away and I think the traveling is too hard on them. I usually have at least a 90 % hatch when I hatch my own eggs but some of my shipments have not hatched at all or only 3-5 hatch out of 2 dozen. I really want to buy some fertile eggs but I would like for them to not have to travel so far.

    Thanks!

    I would post in the "Where am I? Where are you!" section as well. There should be a NM thread you can post in [​IMG].
