    I'm looking for good info from the Silkie folks! I am looking for Blue/Black/Splash, but I am flexible about bearded vs. nonbearded. I would like a good line to work with, but I'm not going to be showing anytime soon. I am very interested in broodiness and motherliness - that's the main thing attracting me to wanting to keep some silkies on the farm. Does anyone have any breeder recommendations? Especially looking for folks who are good at successfully shipping their hatching eggs. I am in Vermont.

    Marge Best is on the upper East Coast I think. She has some great silkies.

    No, Marjory is in Oregon--west coast, not east.
