    I have silkie eggs available. My girls are really laying. They are in a mixed color pen. So its a color suprise! I can individually wrap the eggs in an effort to handle the weather temp.
    25.00 for a dz including shipping, or happy with a pick up in Central Texas

    OK, forgive my ignorance.... blue covering white will give a splash, right? Blue covering partridge = ???
    Partridge covering white =???

    Thats why I called it suprise![​IMG] I really dont know. Splash, yes ...sometimes...sometimes they are just blue......Sometimes they are partridge. I have one that turned out grayish....
    they have been neat looking colors. But I don't have anyway to tell. But they have been hatching healthy for me and I just lov'um!

    Quote:blue and partridge usually will give you a blue colored partridge
    partridge and white will probably give you a lite colored partridge

    blue + white does not = splash

    Blue is a Dilute gene over black gene....2 copies of the dilute gene = splash
