    Well i will have 4 white little fuzzy butt's at my post office hopefully TOMORROW!! im sooo excited.

    My question is..have any of you ever ordered silkies from Meyer hatchery in Ohio before??? How were they? How are they today? Were any of them bearded???

    Reason i ask is because i was really wanting some bearded silkies and meyer's told me today that they offer both but could not guarantee me whether i would receive any bearded or not. So, tell me your stories...if you got any!!! thanks

    I do!!!!!!

    I have a splash and a blue...my blue is bearded, my splash is not.

    I had a lot more, but I sold them off. I had 50% bearded out of my order and 50% non bearded.

    Mine are named Emmy and Mumble, and I'll try to dig up some pics!
