    I don't know why, but my girls have vamped up their laying despite moulting season! Laying up to 8 per day, now! Guess they're happy girls.

    At any rate, I can make a shipment tomorrow if anyone's interested. Expect white, blue, black, and buff chicks. I've been getting mostly heterozygous Showgirls with a scattering of blue Silkies once in a while in my hatches. This is congruent with what buyers have reported in their hatches.

    About my flock... I have F9- F11 Showgirl layers and roos. Two WHITE HOMOZYGOUS Showgirl roos with several white heterozygous Showgirl hens, a few very nice blue Silkies (one won Best in Breed at the state fair) to improve topknots, and some buff Silkies that have just started laying. I have a seperate flock with a lovely Blue Silkie roo and three heterozygous white showgirl hens.

    My goal is for small, round, short-backed Showgirls with nice faces, topknots, and foot feather. All of my birds have nice five-toed feet.

    I'm a very careful packer- haven't had a report of a single broken egg, yet! [​IMG] I'll charge exact shipping + $2 handling/packing. (Expect it to cost between $8-$12.) Most egg sellers don't guarantee hatch rates. But I'll be happy to replace unhatched eggs for free once, no questions asked, you pay shipping. [​IMG]

    First come first serve.

    F9 = 9th generation. In other words, it's been nine generations since the original Silkie X Turken parents. The higher the generation number, generally the higher quality the Showgirl and the more Silkie traits show through like dark skin, rose comb instead of single, heavy foot feather, wing feather shredding, etc... Basically, the goal is a high quality naked neck Silkie with no trace of turken.

    Oh, man, you would test my ability to say no like this. I totally don't have enough coop room for more chickens this winter, and I haven't finished building coop #2 yet, so starting #3 before spring is sooo out of the question... Oh, but if I had adult birds in the spring, think of the hatches I could have. *sigh* I better get out of here before DH decides to move me into the coop with the chickens. lol
