yup. Just gotta catch her.
Are these your first silkies? You will love having them!! Is that ET in your avatar??
I have gotten shipped eggs from this lady in Madera, CA. http://debsbirds.com/ It would be a short trip for them and they are excellent quality. I had a great hatch from my one ebay purchase and zero from another.
Yep first silkies LOL not quite ET but close, I seem to have a soft spot for hairless animals, one of my dogs is hairless too and the closest thing to a naked chicken I could find was the turken so I got 4 pullets
The one color I really want is buff. It would be nice to have B/B/S, Partridge and white.
These look very promising chicks peepblessed, but why you call them porcelain & lav ?
You can see the dorsal stripes so they have the Partridge (eb/eb) groundcolor one based on gold and the other on Silver both have the double doses of lavender. the one with "cream" probably a male, the silverish probably a female. These are as "Porcelain" (gold and Silver) should show the one day pattern.
I don't know, Danny, but many of the lavender chicks here have strips. I have wondered why that is (I suspected there was some eb/eb and porcelain is a temporary name for a project color here in the US. I think there hasn't been agreement on what to call the color. This is a color made by breeding lav to buff and back again to buff. Here is a picture of a mature girl and is the color I'm looking for. I am just enjoying the color and will let others decide what to call it! The lav chick was definitely born with a gold cast and will work out great in my "porcelain" pen.
This girl belongs to the breeder I got the eggs from.
Very nice type of hen. The coloration should have more gray-pearl instead of whitish in my opinion. This hen is a wheaten based (eWh/eWh) which not have much black-pigment and therefor less gray-pearl.
This is a eWh chick
This is a eb chick :
You can see the eWh have less dorsal stripes than the eb.
The eWh have also less black than the eb.
