    YOU MUST COME GET THESE. I WILL NOT SHIP. I'd rather keep them and sell at a local trade than ship...

    Squeaky hatched last summer from eggs brought in from ? (not sure but I think Chickenzoo). Squeaky has won 1st place in his category at shows last fall and this spring. He's not perfect but apparently the competitors were less perfect [​IMG]

    The pullets hatched from eggs I bought from cjexotic last fall. The girls were shown this spring. One is much fluffier and shows better. At least one is laying, maybe both.

    These are beautiful birds and have shown well. They were my daughter's but she just isn't into them. I'm fond of them, but I need more room for my d'Uccle pojects...

    BTW, this pic is from a couple of months ago. Will get a better more recent one since the girls are looking much prettier these days!

    Here is a photo from today. I think both are laying, since I'm getting more eggs than I account for if only 2 birds are laying (they're in with my showgirl but she's not for sale).
    I set some of the eggs to test fertillity. Pullet eggs, so I don't expect great results though...

    Sure wish you were closer.


    I'm looking forward to candling the eggs to see if there's anybody in them. If not, it won't be for lack of attention [​IMG]

    I need more chicks like I need a hole in my head [​IMG]
    But they are keeping my turkey eggs company....

    These birds are camera shy, and much prettier in person.

    Hello,
    My wife is interested in the partridge silkies you have forsale and has place a bid. They look like very nice birds, do you have more silkies avaliable? We are located in sw va and can pick up. How far are you from Bristol Tn?

    Hi! vapride and [​IMG]

    Thanks!! I think they're very nice birds but I'm biased! [​IMG]
    These are the only Silkies I have available right now.

    We're over an hour from Bristol, maybe an hour and a half. I can meet you at exit 407 on I-40, depending on the day / time.
