    Yeah, I looked into getting an R-com, too! I have heard nothing but fantastic reviews about them. BUT the price is prohibitive. No matter, I've found my Brinsea to be a really great machine. I know a lot of people use them, I even have a friend who lives close to me who uses the same exact one I bought, (but she later bought the turner a few months later-- so you can always add that later if you want) and we like to compare every now and then how the machines are running. She has a Genesis 1588 for hatching-- but she says it is terrible at holding humidity, so it can shrink wrap babies easily. I'd thought about buying the Genesis, but after her experience with it, I won't. I would like to get another machine just for hatching, but I'll probably just buy another Brinsea, since I can't imagine how it could go wrong.

    HI all... I have a crappy pic, but I was hoping that someone may be able to tell me what the color would be for this one.. the grey/blue one in the front. It was supposed to be a splash... Um.. don't think i am sure it is... It looked it when I got it at 2 weeks, but not now...

    Awww thanks everybody :)
  8. I LOVE this picture!
    I have 2 silkies, they are about 5 weeks old now and getting really fluffy. One blue and one white. I am fearful that the white one is a roo but I'm crossing my fingers that he's not. we can't keep roosters in our city. :(

    Does anyone know of silkie breeders in San Jose area in CA? And also, what are your experiences with buying eggs off of eBay?

    Ordinarily, I would suggest you stay off of Ebay for buying eggs, but I had great luck with my one and only set of eggs! Read this to say, I got lucky!! Go to the Silkie Club website and join, and find breeders in your area. Keep in mind, it is much safer to buy chicks or even eggs when you get to see the parent birds, and can meet the breeder!
