For auction Black Sizzle (frizzled feathered silkie type feathers) Silkie Pullet 5+ months old The pullet is really nice looking but has a very small straight comb. I believe this will breed out easily enough. She has a large vaulted scull and big crest, beard and muff and very dark skin. She has nice feet but was holding her left 4th toe funny in the pic but when I touched her pad it flexed just fine, I was just unable to get a proper shot of it. See previous auctions for parent pics. I am not certified but I have had a closed flock/s for well over a year now and practice very strict bio security. All of my birds are raised on certified organic feed and using natural organic methods although everyone is vaccinated for Mareks disease as day old chicks and kept isolated for 15 days or so. Contrary to what some believe the vaccination for Mareks for chickens is actually the turkey strain. When introduced to turkey mareks the chick is able to develop a resistance to the chicken mareks if kept isolated from it for 10 days. Vaccinated birds are not carriers and can be kept in a mixed flock with both vaccinated and non vaccinated chickens with no ill effects. She will ship in a new box express with shredded apples for the journey. I will only ship weather permitting on both ends. I have 24 hour heat pads and will be fixing one to box. I also have shipping waterers and will use one if the express trip will take more than 24 hours for an additional $2.50 if wanted, they are really useful and reusable. I welcome pick ups! Cost of shipping with box is $55. I will be traveling Feb 23-weekend to VT. I can plan a pick up on the highway along the way on the way up (not the way back) to avoid shipping costs, anywhere along I95 to 91 then up to Mt Stowe area and Morrisville VT. Payment must be made at end of auction though.
