    Up for auction are 4 nice looking buff silkies. These are a few months old - hatched between December and February. I have been hatching up a storm, so I am unsure of the exact age. The should be breeding age by the middle of summer I would say. I've got just a few too many birds (okay, way too many birds), so I'm working on thinning out a little (hence the low starting price and no reserve). Please do NOT expect me to bathe these prior to shipping - it is still cold here in PA. I can spray them for mites before they leave at your request. Watch for more auctions, as I have a few other birds I'll be listing, including a black roo and some whites (I can try to combine shipping). For four birds, it will take two boxes taped together, hence the $85 shipping fee. If shipping + paypal fees + $10 for boxes is less than the $85 to your location, I will refund the difference! Paypal due within 24 hours of auction end so I can send these out promptly at the begining of next week! PM me for paypal address. Please excuse the photos - it's spring (mud season) here, so their feet and faces aren't the cleanest... Thanks! **Edited to say - local pickup welcomed - will meet within a reasonable distance of zip code 16335! **Cannot ship to Virginia!!!**

    Beth,

    Thanks for the compliment! Unfortunately, I have no clue what these little ones are... I would almost put money on the first one pictured being a girl, but the rest... I have no idea. I am not the best silkie sexer - I sometimes think a bird is a pullet until I hear it crowing LOL... As far as their bloodlines, they're a mix. I got birds & eggs from several reputable breeders lats year, and these are the offspring of those. Sorry I can't be more specific :-/

    Thanks!

    No Problem, I was just curious as I'm sure others will probably be too. So, I figured I'd ask first....lol

    They are very cute though. Oh boy I will have to have DH look at them tomorrow to see for himself before I start the begging process [​IMG] HAHA

    Good point! Buffs are my favorite, and I had it in my mind I was going to part with ZERO buffs this year... but, I don't want to keep them crowded either :-/
