    Description:
    12 plus eggs from my paint silkie and showgirl flock, plus extras if I can get them. They can also hatch black, blue, partridge, or white. Sometimes a red paint will hatch. I have a black showgirl roo (hatched from paints) and silkie paint roo over paint silkie and showgirl hens, as well as one black hen. In a separate pen, I have a blue rooster over a blue silkie and showgirl. I will include those eggs as free extras, which could hatch splash. Those eggs will be marked with a B to distinguish.


    I've attached lots of pictures of what I have. Feel free to scroll through all the pictures at the top to check them out! These birds are my pets and I love them all. I'm hoping that sharing these eggs I cannot hatch will bring someone else as much enjoyment.


    Keep in mind while beautiful silkies and showgirls hatch, not all of them are perfect. Paints are still a work in progress. Sometimes there are pigment holes in the eyes or pink skin, incorrect toes, single comb, or other imperfections can happen in addition to off colors.


    Since I cannot control the hens laying, if they should slow down, and I am unable to collect the minimum by the shipping date, the buyer would have the option to cancel order or wait for the additional eggs.


    I am getting excellent fertility in the eggs I am incubating, but I cannot guarantee hatch rates with shipped eggs. I have even had 100% fertility reported on eggs I shipped last month. They will be shipped by USPS Priority Mail, which typically takes 2-3 days. I will not be responsible for any accidents in the mail since I cannot control what happens when they leave. I will ship within continental US only, excluding HI, AK. If your state has restrictions on receiving shipped eggs, please contact me prior to buying. I will individually wrap each egg and package with care. I will mark the box as fragile. There are too many factors that affect hatching of eggs, I cannot guarantee hatch rates.


    I don't wash the eggs, but I wipe loose dirt off of the occasional dirty eggs.


    Feel free to PM me if you have questions. Thanks! [​IMG]
