    If you really want Showgirls you should buy some good ones from a breeder. It takes a lot of work, time and knowledge to breed good Showgirls.

    I have been trying to, with no success. The one's that I have found either just got some themselves, or they won't ship. I'm over here in Arizona.

    I understand. I never shipped any of mine either. Keep looking and check into some eggs also. Even if it takes a year or more it is still better in the long run to purchase quality. It costs money to feed, money better spent on birds you really want, than to feed culls for several years [or more]. Remember you had better have super Silkies to begin with.......if you don't then you have a whole new search for them before you can even think of crossing them.

    Yes, I would even buy hatching egg's for them, if someone was willing to ship them. I just had some regular silkies shipped from Florida in my incubator. Those came from Magnolia Silkies. I got some black and some white from her pen's.
