    My birds are mainly from Premier Silkies or are crosses out of them. Still a small percentage of Shorty Polston and Bobbi Porto in some of the older hens. I picked up a nice pair of splash from Ken Splett at a show this fall. The buffs are a mystery for bloodlines and still need some work.

    I will only be doing a limited amount of hatching this year. I'm pregnant and due in March.... Getting a few early hatches in now and am going to shut the incubator off til way later this spring. I also live in Minnesota so shipping over the winter months will be limited too. I already have a waiting list for whatever is available. Any pet quality culls and extra cockerels are sold at local swaps (usually to the Asian market).
