    Anyone else on here have Nankins? I have 1 rooster and 5 hens...they are my favorite chicken ever because of their friendly personalities!

    I have some on my website its touchwoodsilkies...we have tried to get 3 different lines from all different points of the nation hoping to have less directly related birds...we only breed a few and then my son likes to show some and we sell any extras.

    Quote:No, she is my original hen that I got locally (in GA). She has too much black in her back, but some of her chicks looked fairly good.

    I really love Nankins!
    I was thinking of getting some from Ideal.
    But i might as well ask this first, are any of you going to have nankin eggs you can sell in the spring or summer?
    Not many, like 4-6 eggs?
