    ok here goes! i am now offering standard silkie eggs!! this auction is for 6+ eggs (up to 12) my white standard hens are weighing 6lbs to nearly ten lbs. my biggest hen is as big as my standard cochin roo!!
    these are a work in progress, meaning, that even tho these are pure silkie, the comb on some of them may be single and they need some better feathering on their legs. BUT these girls lay better than a regular silkie, i usually get 6 eggs a week from each hen and the eggs are the size of a Rhode island reds! on average each hen goes broody about 2x a year and they can cover 12- 18 eggs!

    these girls are just as sweet and mellow as the bantam silkies. i have a buff roo (5lbs) and Blue splash roo (5lbs) in the silkie pen right now
    i will start collecting eggs on the 25th, and keep collecting till the 30th for shipping on the 31 early morning. they will be packed very well. we have 100% fertility here, with 95% hatch rate. i cannot gaurentee your perosonal hatch rate due to things out of my control such as the way the post office handles the box and due to incubating variables. i will how ever replace any broken eggs, buyer pays shipping. but you must supply me with a picture of the egg(s) that are broken the day you recieve them. paypal accepted only for this auction

    very hardy also here are a few pics:

    i have 2nd generation hens from my original hens, then i have a batch of eggs in the bator right now that are silkie/std cochin cross which will help improve type and leg feathering. those chick will then be bred to a pure silkie and everything with non silkie characteristics will be culled/or sold. but as of right now, all my hens are pure silkie, with work only needing done with the combs and better leg feathering. these girls are HUGE lol have one hen now that is broody and sitting on 18 eggs
