    I was put on the waiting list for the self-blue silkies for next year. Ideal called me and asked if I wanted some to ship on the 30th! [​IMG] So I am getting 6 more lavender silkies. Hopefully, this time I dont get more roosters than hens! (3 roos and 1 hen the first time)

    Thanks olp. I really had to consider getting these because I'm swamped with chicks now. All the broodies are hatching [​IMG] (My one silkie hatched 14 out of 15 eggs!) But I have interested buyers for the ones I have, so I know that I would have room for the lavenders.

    Can you post pictures of the ones you already have. I would be interested in seeing how their color looks. I left an email a while back to be on the waiting list for contact when they had some more lavenders.

    My only lavender pullet at one day old. I really like her vaulted skull, but she has an extra third toe on one foot. [​IMG] Out of four, I get three cockerals and one pullet...and then I find out she has an extra toe....Hopefully this time I get a couple more pullets [​IMG]
