    I thought I would post some updated photos of my silvers. I kept the two roos that I thought was the best. I really like all of my silvers and have not seen a problem with flightyness much at all. I am still waiting on eggs from them though. They are about 6 - 6 1/2 months old.

    Sigh...I had some silver pullets until about a month ago. They were so spunky and pretty. I'm going to try my luck with some hatching eggs in the spring from another person in the ABC. I hope you get some of your own chicks :)

    Quote:I got mine from Pips and Peeps. Shipped from Washington state to New York I had a good hatch rate. I know she wants other people involved that want to improve the variety.

    Hi,

    I'm Chris from Vermont and I'm crazy for Silver Ameraucanas!

    I have a trio of John Blehm birds that were hatched April 2012. They are beautiful to my eye, although would like a better comb on the rooster. Open to your comments. I hope to be hatching some of their eggs this year and am a novice as to judging the finer points. I am sad that I sold some of them last spring before they grew out. I'm kicking myself now! But maybe that means I can find some others to diversify genetics with.
    That's why I am here!

    Some of you I may have met on the main Ameraucana site. Sorry if I was one of those that was a pain in the butt for a while! I am learning, and have chosen a color now.

    I want to get to know those of you who are raising Silvers, I LOVE THEM! Even though I love all the colors, these are the ones that make my heart pound! [​IMG]

    If any of you will have hatching eggs, chicks or maybe yearlings I'd love to get more. Hopefully if all goes well there will be some to share from this trio.
    I don't know how close the birds are bred, but will be taking a shot at hatching. Just got a Brinsea Mini Advance today (SOOO EGGCITED!!!) and have a few broody Silkies that are great mothers.
    The pics are Sir Silver and his two Silver Girls!

    The hens look so much alike I can't tell them apart, even side by side!

    Do you have any hatching eggs, chicks or young stock for sale? I'm hoping your birds made it through the winter ok! I am looking for more quality purebred Silvers to add to my John Blehm trio.
