    For Auction nice pair of White Silkies green band #37 & #33. The Pullet is very nice with huge crest, nice type and great feet (I personally this she has great potential to be a good show bird) The cock has a small dark comb, big crest and good feet although he could use some more separation on the 4th and 5th toe on one foot, he too has good potential IMO. They are only about 4 months old and still have quiet a few pinfeathers. I have received several reports from buyers of my whites that they have done very well in shows (I dont show myself) and have won top titles many times.

    I am not certified but I have had a closed flock/s for well over a year now and practice very strict bio security. All of my birds are raised on certified organic feed and using natural organic methods although everyone is vaccinated for Mareks disease as day old chicks and kept isolated for 15 days or so. Contrary to what some believe the vaccination for Mareks for chickens is actually the turkey strain. When introduced to turkey mareks the chick is able to develop a resistance to the chicken mareks if kept isolated from it for 10 days. Vaccinated birds are not carriers and can be kept in a mixed flock with both vaccinated and non vaccinated chickens with no ill effects.



    They will ship in a new box express with shredded apples for the journey. I will only ship weather permitting on both ends. I have 24 hour heat pads and will be fixing one to box. I also have shipping waterers and will use one if the express trip will take more than 24 hours for an additional $2.50 if wanted, they are really useful and reusable. I welcome pick ups! Cost of shipping with box is $55 . I will refund the difference in $ if this price is too high, but I have been taking a hit with some of my auctions and would rather return some money than pay out of pocket for not charging enough. I have ordered larger boxes so I can combine shipping with other auctions.

    I will be traveling Feb 23-weekend to VT. I can plan a pick up on the highway along the way on the way up (not the way back) to avoid shipping costs, anywhere along I95 to 91 then up to Mt Stowe area and Morrisville VT. Payment must be made at end of auction though.


    Sorry they are so dirty I just did not have the time to bathe them all before pics. I will clean them up before shipping however.
