    I thought I would make a neat list of all of the Silkie breeders here on BYC.
    I'm calling all of you other Silkie breeders to join in the fun! [​IMG]
    I'll start:
    I currently raise Silkies in Black, Lavender, and White.

    I raise Bearded Buffs.
    I am currently trying to get a pen of b/b/s started, all through hatching eggs
    I am also NPIP, though still waiting on my certificate and number, over 4 weeks later [​IMG]


    Anyways, also looking for trades. My bearded buff eggs for some of your bearded buff eggs or blue, black, or splash eggs. You need to be NPIP and I will need a copy of your certificate or number and I will send a copy of my actual pullorum test. Email me at [email protected] or PM me. No hatchery birds please. And parents need to be free from DQ's and I need to see pictures of recent chicks and recent pics of the parents. Thanks. [​IMG]

    Also have some eggs listed on ovabid. Username SundownSilkies. http://www.ovabid.com/detail.asp?id=37611 [​IMG]

    I have White, Blue, Black, Splash, and soon lavender hopefully.

    Lines from Bobbi Porto, Sunshine Silkies, Harvest Breed Farms, Cush N Tush. Later on down the line. George M, Hattrick, Alan Stanford and others whom names escape me right now. lol.

    My Splash hen finally started laying again I think! Been broody on the floor for months. Trying to break her everyday. And a few days ago I accidently left her out in the run at night. I noticed she was actually up and walking around. Then yesterday there was an egg out in the run. [​IMG] If I knew all I had to do was leave her out I would of done it months ago. lol

    Wouldn't it be easier just checking the ASBC directory for the list of silkie breeders? They just updated a new one for 2010 and they are all categorized by state. It lists the varieties raised, if they have stock for sale, contact info, etc. Club membership is only $15 per year for adults and they do have discounted family rates. You then have access to their forum, get a quarterly newsletter, and get points/awards for showing. They have an awesome new juniors program. There is another national silkie club, the NSBA, that is invitational only to people that are dedicated breeders and show.
