    Up for your consideration are 4 juveniles that are just coming 8 weeks old that were hatched from our paint on paint breeding pen. All of these juveniles will likely carry the paint gene, but the knowledge of paint breeding is still somewhat limited and no guarantees are made. I do know paint breeders who have bred the solids colored birds from their paint pens together and gotten spotted chicks. There are 2 that are lovely splash babies and in my opinion you can see the paint spots as well as the splashing. These are sold as straight run.

    Below are photos of each one by band number along with a description of each one. Photos are difficult to take of these babies. If you are interested but would like more pics of specific ones, let me know. At the very bottom are pics of the parent birds of these babies.

    Shipping will be $55.00 and will include a new Horizon box. Please be sure you understand the risks of shipping prior to bidding as I cannot issue refunds due to shipping problems. I will ship the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. I do add a container of feed and shipping waterers to ensure their safety as much as possible.


    1. Splash/paint; band blue#5. Great toes, black skin with no pigment holes; black eyes.

    Yes...that is a HUGE cherry pie!! I bought it for my daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner and completely forgot to put it out. It got a little too old for us in the refrigerator but the silkies were in heaven!! The cutest thing is to watch one grab a cherry and run around the pen with it while 2 or 3 of the others chase them trying to steal it.
