    Silkie Duck hatching eggs available.
    My mixed color flock came directly from Holderread Waterfowl Farm. These little ducks are so much fun to have around! They are great foragers and are easy on my garden when I let them help with bug and slug control.
    I have one drake that is heterozygous for the silkie feathered gene, so he has regular feathers and can fly a little. The ducks with silkie feathers can't fly. The gene for regular feathers was introduced to improve hatchability of the eggs. Please be aware that these eggs are somewhat tricky to hatch. It is best to use a dedicated incubator for them and don't mix them with other duck breed eggs. This way you can watch the aircells closely and reduce humidity if needed, to make sure the eggs are dehydrating sufficiently. Also, these ducklings usually hatch early, at around 26 days.

    Eggs are $4 each, priority shipping is $12 up to one dozen eggs, $15 up to 20 eggs.

    Please see my website for other hatching eggs that I have available:

    I will carefully wrap the eggs and ship them on a Monday or Tuesday. I will promptly email you a tracking number. Please note that I cannot be held responsible for your hatch rate or how the postal service treats the eggs. In any case though, please let me know if there are any problems and I'll try to make it right.
