    I can only put up another one if it ships next week (got other orders this coming week.) :/ So it would be Monday NEXT week for it to ship. So maybe I should wait huh?

    I look forward to it. Lol You really must let me buy some of your silkied Am or OE eggs whenever you have some extras. Let me know how much they are a dozen and I will start saving up. :p It is the one thing I really want to add to my flock. I have only been able to find them for sale on a single website. The eggs are costly and I would prefer to buy them from someone I can trust rather than a complete stranger. I could be paying a lot of money for Lord only knows what...lmbo! :lol:

    Aw, I love them! I wish I was closer. I used to spend every summer in Texas and it was over 13 hours on the road to get there. Dang! I guess eggs are going to be my only option. :/

    Yeah really...lol Have you ever heard of a farm named Olivender Farm? That is the place I saw online that sells eggs. Theirs are $55 a dozen with free shipping buts buying something sight unseen from someone I have never shared a single word with is kind of scary to me. I have bought some eggs on eBay before, like marans eggs but I figure Paypal has my back to an extent and also EBay. It is frustrating when you can not find a breed you really want anywhere near by you know?

    There are very few people that have the silkied Ams - they spontaneously occured in a pair that hatched in TX 2010.
    Very inbred apparently, managing to hatch and raise to maturity was incredibly difficult. Several generations later, it's much better, but many couldn't take the heartbreak and stick through it. They are still very rare. Rare is rarely inexpensive. I've got a few choc/mauve silkied Am eggs available now but I'm fine with putting them in the bator as it's about open again.
