    I went yesterday with the family and we were super overwhelmed with the crowds! We like living in the country to stay away from that kind of thing, but there were some beautiful birds there and I took a whole bunch of pictures!

    Quote:Thank you silkieluver! [​IMG] Waynesboro is very close to me for sure! I'm not too picky about the breed and I will take mixed breeds as well. I have found myself working on collecting the Easter Egger colors...yes, I know they are mutts, but I love their craziness and their colors. [​IMG] I will write down what you will have and I will contact you when I'm actually looking to purchase. I'm thinking about starting to fill the incubator around mid March time frame. [​IMG] As long as all goes well anyway. [​IMG]
    As for your silkie eggs, you have me very interested. My 14 year old daughter has wanted them for a long time now, but shipping costs always pushed them way out of my budget range. [​IMG] What prices are your pet quality and your show quality? I'm thinking about allowing my kiddos to get into showing, and they can't do that with my pet flock [​IMG]
    Thank you!

    No problem, my pet quality silkie eggs are $15 a dozen (the eggs will be pure silkie but not pure colors, I have a fun pen for cool color mixes. I cannot sell show quality eggs because there is no guarantee that the chick will be show quality as it matures. Pet quality chicks are ones with disqualifications such as not enough or too many toes, single combs. Breeder quality are birds that will place at shows but have minor faults that can be easily improved upon like toe spacing, foot feathering, and crest size. Show quality are birds I would actually take to a show that have great type, color, and all the other qualities I look for in a bird

    Hello,
    I just wanted to let our fellow BYC neighbors that we are having a chicken stock and would like to see ya'll there too if you can make it.
    You must be Tested for AI and NPIP to sell. Or just come on down and meet us and buy some chickens.
    Hope everyone had a great New Years!
