    I'm hatching some shipped silkie egg's from them also. I'm in the July 4th Hatch-a-long one, though. Good luck with your hatch!

    Thank You! What colors did you get from her and how many? How are they doing?:D Im just curious on how other people's hatch rates are doing with her eggs. At first she sent 18 beautifully packaged eggs to me, but due to the Post Office's rough handling I only ended up with 3 developing:( Anyways, Good luck to you too!:)

    I had gone in with another lady over here on a shipment of egg's from her. My friend @Michelle Guynn kept all of the buff one's and a few of another color. I got 16 of them in mostly black, with a few white, and there' was one blue splash. Michelle was the one they were mailed to, and she said that Magnolia Silkies did a good job on the packing.

    I already have 5 silkies from 2 other sources that I'm growing out over here, 1 blue, 2 black, and 2 paints.

    Congratulations! She's adorable :love so floofy!

    Are any of your others beginning to hatch?

    I've never done one of these hatch along posts so I'm not sure if everyone creates their own for their own hatches...:confused: I don't know how they work.

    Anyways, I'll be setting 8 Silkie eggs and 1 booted x d'Anvers batam egg in my incubator tomorrow!
