    I would also be interested in eggs, chicks, or leads as to who may have some, or be working on them!

    They do not need to be perfect!

    Please PM me with any info you may have! THANKS!

    I have a columbian pattern silkie pair, hen is not laying yet. If you want, I can email you when they get old enough and I'll send you eggs. It should be any time now. They are not perfect, but are a good start.

    Here is a picture of the roo. Hen looks very similar.

    Quote:They came from a breeder here in Florida who said she bought an assortment of eggs from a nice breeder in Michigan. I bought a bunch of chicks from her, and these were in there. She told me the name of her website, but I cannot remember it now. I visited the website right after I bought them, and they were nice! I will keep a list, and I will contact you whenever she begins to lay, hopefully soon!

    I would think that a columbian patterned roo over a white hen/pullet should throw some columbian patterned chicks....might be a way to continue with this pattern. I also think in 2 generations you could use a Columbian roo over black hens. Columbian roo bred back to F1 hens (his daughters) ought to throw some columbian patterned chicks as well

    I have Columbian Rocks (LF) and LOVE the columbian pattern

    Sorry to "butt in"......
