    No shipping, local pick up only. This picture is from the last hatch as these are hatching now under the hen. So far seven available. Hens are mostly partridge. Roo is buff. Roo has correct mulberry comb but comb color could be a bit darker. Chicks should have correct skin color and 5 toes. Moms are vaulted/bearded but roo is not bearded or vaulted. Previous chicks have so far all been bearded but not vaulted. Silkies make GREAT broodies. This mom is hatching these eggs in 100 degree temps with lots of humidity. It is amazing. Everyone should have a couple silkies in their flock!
