    I just had to post some feedback about the amazing service I have recieved from JJ / napalongtails.

    Firstly she gave me 11 of her SQ bearded silkie eggs for $10! They arrived packaged perfectly and up the right way!
    Secondly she put up with and answered all my inane questions since I have no experience hatching eggs.
    And out of our 11 eggs 5 have chicks developing inside them as of day 12. This is basically 50% or thereabouts which from what I have read is pretty good for shipped eggs.

    So imagine my surprise today when I got to the mailbox and find a box from JJ with another 8 eggs in it with a note simply saying that she hoped these extra eggs gave us a few extra peeps. She never told me they were coming or anything nor did I ever ask as we were very pleased with the first batch of eggs!

    She has WAY exceeded my expectations and I am really glad to have gotten the chance to buy from her and pick her brains for all the knowledge she has about keeping and hatching silkies.

    Thanks again JJ,

    today is day 14 and I candled last night...man its so exciting to see the lil guys moving in the shell! I could only DEFINITELY see 3 of the 5 moving around but im pretty sure the others were too...just it was late and my tired eyes were playing tricks i think! I will take another look in a couple of days.

    JJ has the most awesome looking birds on her site..check out the pics.

    napalongtail is great. i bought phoenix eggs from her and i got about 75% - 80% hatch. she packages her eggs really nice.

    i ended up hatching:
    1 white roo
    3 white pullets
    3 silver roos
    1 silver pullet
    1 gold roo
    1 gold pullet

    they are all doing very well.
