    Thanks a bunch-I've been looking for that site for awhile! Let's see how my dutch is-it used to be passable.
    Does anyone know breeder's websites as there aren't any posted on the website.

    Anyone with breeder's websites?
     
  5. Contact Hans. His email is listed on that Dutch site. I'm sure he can refer you to someone. He's also the only one with paints I believe.

    You wouldn't happen to know of any in the US or Canada would you?
     

  7. There are only 20 to 30 breeding birds on the ground in the entire world, and they are those in the Dutch Countries, and they belong to one breeder I believe.

    Had a feeling. Out of all the silkies, I of course only show interest in the ones that aren't going to be coming here for quite some time. I'll stick with the standard breeds for now...and have silkies to set.

    *looks up at the coop* "Hear that?! SET!!"
     
  9. I dont think those 'paint' Silkies will make it to a point where they are plentiful any time soon. It's taken 15+ years to get them to this point, and there are still only 20-30 birds. Thats not many considering how many have had to been hatched over the years.
