    ***VISIT OUR WEBSITE AT compoundshowgirls.weebly.com TO SEE ALL OUR BIRDS!***

    I have a lovely young pair of pure White Showgirls available. They are heterozygous (bearded and bowtied), so could be used to begin a linebreeding program. They are 10 weeks old. I am fairly certain that one is a cockerel and one is a pullet, though sexing silkies is notoriously difficult. They are beautiful, with good silkie conformation, 5 toes, great purple skin, middle toe feathering, and excellent vaulted skulls and crests. They both have beards and bowties. They will be sexually mature at about 6 months. These cuties are out of Inga Ladd stock. Please visit our website at compoundshowgirls.weebly.com if you aren't sure what a Showgirl is. These birds are extremely rare and valuable. I don't charge as much as they are really worth, since I've never had any interest in showing. I will happily hold them for you upon Paypal payment receipt. These are certainly fantastic show prospects. Showgirls are shown as AOV Silkies, and a Showgirl is a Showgirl, even if it is a boy. I have included some pics of their older siblings and their mothers, as well. These two birds are $45 each, or $80 for both.

    ^^^^THE TWO WHITE SHOWGIRLS HAVE BEEN PURCHASED!^^^^


    I also have two breeder quality 6 week old Heterozygous Paint Showgirls available. They are too young to accurately sex. They are VERY faintly spotted, but will throw Paint babies. They would be a good start to a Paint program, though they are not perfect. They have good silkie type, good feet, and nice soft feathering, but they do have some light skin that I doubt will ever darken completely. Their sibling (who is NOT for sale) is absolutely beautiful, and was born with no pink skin whatsoever, a nice dark beak, decent spotting, and great dark yes without pigment holes, so they are quite capable of throwing babies of much better quality than themselves, with careful breeding. I have included some pictures of the one chick out of this batch of babies that I AM keeping, as I don't have too many good pics of the ones I'm not super impressed with. These two (the SIBLINGS of the Paint pictured) are $20 each or $35 for both. I can ship them as well, but they would have to go together. Shipping is $50.


    I have a White from Paint regular (feather necked) Silkie (sibling to the two breeder quality Paints) that you may have for FREE if you buy both Paints.


    I am happy to hold these birds for pickup or the shipping date of your choice UPON RECEIPT OF PAYMENT to [email protected].

    I have had a LOT of interest in these birds. Please note that I can hold them for you for shipment or pick up ONCE YOU ACTUALLY SEND PAYMENT. Lots of people have told me they "really want them," but don't seem to be willing or able to pay for them after they have "claimed" them. Please, if you are serious about purchasing these birds, plan to pay for them ASAP, or they may be officially claimed by someone else's more prompt payment. I certainly don't want anyone to be disappointed. If you miss out this go round, I'm certain to have more available birds soon. Thanks!
