    Are they SQ? I want to order some next spring and I would also like to show them. If you have pics of some could you show me? I want blue/splash and white.

    Any Help appreciated!

    Expecting show quality birds from a hatchery is a road to disappointment. Hatcheries breed hundreds of fowl with quantity as their main focus. Quality gets put on the back burner. Hatcheries are great places to get pet birds, and egg layers. I purchased some Silkies (as pets) from hatcheries in the past and most had disqualifications, and to be honest they were even unappealing to the eyes.
    If you want SQ fowl then you need to speak with a breeder.
