    I am looking for someone that is interested in swapping a bird or two with me, so I can diversify the line a bit.

    I prefer something Show Quality so I can maintain the type.

    OMG those are FANTASTIC!

    Are the two in front the base colors or splits? What kind of fertility have you had?

    I have a show quality silkie x over black I can let you borrow.

    Thanks for the nice comments PC. It's been a long road getting this far, I can tell you that!

    I posted two greys and a buff. I'd like to split these to lavendar.

    Also, I have produced two different sizes with these, bantam and standard:

    I could lend you a paint, if you are interested in adding that color in.

    Quote:Sorry, I left out the fertility part. These are not good natural breeders, I have had to do AI with all of mine.
