    Hi! I'm looking to restart my flock with a few colorful egg layers, along with a couple of cute silkies. All other breeds, I have a big preference for bantam sized, but that might be hard to find for some.

    Local pick-ups are a big plus (around Northern California/Bay Area), along with having several of the breeds I'm interested in (chicks rather than eggs are okay as well in this case, since shipping chicks can get crazy).

    Otherwise, shipping works great!

    The price I put up probably doesn't accurately represent the amount I'm willing to spend as some breeds are a lot more expensive than others.

    I'm looking for breeder quality (non-hatchery) hatching eggs of:
    • Silkies (with big, floofy crests), any color but pure black (unless BBS)
    • Pure-bred Bantam Ameraucanas, preferably wheaten
    • Other bantams with unique feathering (silkie/frizzled) or colorful eggs; both pure and mixed breeds are fine
      (e.g. frizzled easter egger, frizzled polish, frizzled cochin, sizzle x olive egger, polish x ameraucana etc.)
    • Cream Legbars
    • Blue Isbars
    • Cayuga ducks

    I have a huge interest in funky looking chickens and colorful eggs. Please try me if you think you've got something different!

    For the silkies, I would look on these two threads:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...ilkie-eggs-ship-3-9-2015wk-located-in-georgia

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...-chicken-hatching-eggs-for-sale-free-shipping

    This thread sells wheaten Ameraucanas, I don't know if they are Bantams
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/660074/wheaten-blue-wheaten-ameraucana-1-dozen-buy-it-now-price

    For bantams, seabright are a nice choice along with Appenzellers Spitzhaubens.

    For Cream Legbars, this thread sells them :
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/951213/crested-cream-legbar-hatching-eggs-npip-ai-clean
    And if those aren't for you, you should look on the Cream Legbar thread.

    For blue Isbars I would look on the blue Isbar thread :
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/612806/blue-isbars-pictures-and-discussion

    I don't know about ducks, but I hope that helped :)

    As XxMingirlxX mentioned we do sell silkie eggs and would be glad to work with you on an order if you like. I don't have cayuga ducks, but we do carry showline Saxony ducks from Holdderead. You can also check under other poultry for non chicken eggs! I will message you to see if you have any questions and thanks! Have a blessed day!

    Thank you all for looking into this for me! I'm currently talking to a silkie breeder around my area =)

    I'm basically on ebay and byc every other hour, refreshing the hatching eggs pages. I think I've memorized almost all of the available auctions and BINs @[email protected] I feel like I'm going cross-eyed!

    We love our birds and thought I just needed to send you more pics LOL. In the mean time it's evening chores. If you want to see more silkie pics we have a silkie album on BYC as well as more photos in the different pages of the lists... Please message me if you have any questions and if we can help you in any way. :) [​IMG] Some from Paula Jean's hatch that she kept the eggs warm in front of a fireplace right before lock down! A true miracle hatch!

    My gosh your silkies are the best I've seen so far... I'm currently on day 19 on some eggs that I managed to get from a local breeder. I'll definitely order some from you next to expand my silkie flock!!
