I do so enjoy the work in progress photos. I'm quite happy with my Nudies as they are, but I'd really love some different colours by design rather than accident!

You could always pop a Golden Partridge Cockerel in the mix as they look really nice ! We do assume you are talking about TNN's and not showgirls ?

Our showgirl hatching is now complete, sorry to say the last two ended up as DIS's so not much luck this time but at least we successfully hatched 3 out of 7 which were fertile and the five which were unfertile.
Could those who had showgirl eggs let us know what their hatch ratios were please, send us a PM if you would like.

I am sure we will try some more soon, We do know that silkies are quite difficult to hatch anyway.

The three survivor's are strong little ones and very squeaky
Lol

Now have 7 out of 8 hatched and looking good, i think the eighth may have DIS but 7 of the original 9 via post is good enough for me.
