    3Chicks I actually have a few more left to sell still holding onto them for now. I know I have a trio (Boy and 2 girls) that are about 3.5 months old that I'm figuring to sell. If you want them I will hold onto them and try to make sure I can make it to WCA that Sunday :)

    Yes I am very interested in them. Are they Breeder quality? Can you tease me some and post a picture of them?

    I'll go out in a few and try and get pictures :) though they are filthy right now...LOL

    At this point the girls have no DQs - just weak wings (not split) or are a color/shade I can't use with my breeding program. The boys are a ginger red and not a proper dark chested - but nice and typey so far and still good to use in breeding, I have a dark chested male and a ginger male for my two seperate pens.

    heres one of the boys a couple weeks ago :

    Very Handsome! I am selling my hatchery silkies this weekend and anything left at WCA. I know we will be hatching eggs so I want to get in some BQ so I can do right by the breed. I don't know a lot but I know yours are so pretty.

    SQ = Show Quality
    PQ = Pet Quality
    DQ = Disqualifying Fault
