    Ok, so what is it about the silkies and polish you like? The poof? The flashiness? The temperament? That might help you narrow it down? My silkies are pretty good layers, as long as I can keep them from being broody.... I get about an egg a day per bird and their eggs are a little larger than a typical bantam egg.

    I'm located just west of the state college area. I agree- very messy, but so personable! We have them in large cage layered with plastic, so it makes it really easy to clean every day.

    Well then! April has a rabbit cage, so I could use that for quarantine for now. When would work for pick up? I'm tickled to death that you're so close and have ducks, LOL!

    Drop off would be awesome, if you're alright with that! You'd get a chance to see how they'd be treated here, which might put your mind at ease as to where they're going, lol.

    If anyone wants some half gallon plastic milk jugs, let me know. We go through about six of them per week, and while I'm using the sin out of them now, I'll soon have way more than necessary. I like them for waterers (using nipples) and carrying water, but I'm sure there are a lot more uses for them.

    Just discovered my fellow PA'ers. [​IMG]
    My backyard flock consists of 4 buff brahma's and 3 blue splash marans (all hens which just turned 1 yr old). However, I hope to be increasing the flockette with my very first incubated brood. 14 mail ordered blue splash marans eggs...6 piped this morning and as I sit here I hear their first little peeps. How egg-citing!!! [​IMG]
