    Is there anyway I could get 6-12 blue silkies? Maybe half blue and half splash? I just candled my silkie eggs and it looks like non are growing:-( All of my sex link eggs are but it's the silkies I really need. I have one super lonely gorgeous blue roo:-(

    Ps are they bearded?

    [​IMG] I'm not her, but blue is not a true breeding color. There is no way to know what the chicks will be when they are still in the eggs. From a blue to blue mating, only 50% will be blue, the others splashes and blacks. And if she has whites in her pen (like I do) white is possible too.

    And I think hers are bearded, I have seen pics of her birds.

    I want and would love blues or blue splashes. I know about them throwing blacks but that would just help me to breed more blues. Thanks for the info. I couldn't turn away any silkies it's just the blues that hold my heart:)

  6. Hi! Me 3 [​IMG]
    In the Silkie pen, there are:
    7 blue girls (6 bearded / 1 non-bearded),
    2 splash girls (bearded),
    3 white girls (2 bearded / 1 non-bearded).
    The Silkie rooster is a bearded white.

    The chicks are hatching blue. splash, and white
    (Check Silkieluvr's post in 'Incubating and Hatching' for the most recent Silkie hatchlings).

    Thanks,
    Lisa

    Wow, she had a great hatch, especially for shipped eggs. What are you asking for two dozen? I've got a hatch due this weekend, so I will have bator space next week... LOL

    I use a black roo and a blue roo over black and white hens, and I've been getting mostly blacks, but these two roos are the best I have, sooo

  10. Hi!
    Sent you a PM, Karri.

    It depends on how the fickle-pickle girls lay. There is the potential for 2 doz fresh, but they don't always cooperate (I try not to ship eggs that are over 3 days old).

    "I use a black roo and a blue roo over black and white hens, and I've been getting mostly blacks, but these two roos are the best I have, sooo..."
    That's precisely why I'm using the white roo.
    I have several blue / splash roos I could use, but the white roo makes nicer chicks [​IMG]
