Our silkie and showgirl are totally seperated, so there's no cross. Our silkie pen is 100% silkie (none carried showgirl genes). The Lavender/split silkie pen have: 1 lav silkie roo + 4 lav silkie hens + 2 black silkie hens(my award winning blacks). All 100% silkie. With these eggs, you will hatch 100% lavender and splits( will be black) carries lavender genes. They are not gray or light blue. They are LAVENDER - self blue. It takes 2 set of lavender genes to get a lavender, so what ever the split you hatched will carry one set, cross with another split will give you 100% lavender. Lavender eggs will be smaller because this is their first year; but we have hatched out some beauty. These 6 eggs will be ship in foam container to ensure protection from rough handling and temperture. We have in the past used USPS pick up service on shipped eggs and not realized that they sit in open mailcar in 100 degree temperture riding all over town till they reach PO. Now we deliver the box stright to PO and will like to advise your pick up at PO too in some part of the country especially in southern state that's hot. Thank you so much for looking.
