    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! I'm afraid I'm not a silkie keeper but I'm sure if you pop by one of the silkie threads members there should be able to help you. Here is a link to a popular thread ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/297632/silkie-thread

    Wishing you the very best of luck, I hope you get all the answers you need. Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    I would be concerned that the eggs would not make it intact, over that distance. Even in US people end up with a lot of "scrambled" eggs due to shipping. Hatches are much more successful with local eggs. If someone were flying over to get them, I believe they are allowed to have them with them on the plane.
