SILKIE SILKIE SILKIE:

Alabama Silkies. Silkie Silkie Silkie The Silkie is a breed of chicken named for its atypically fluffy plumage, which is said to feel like silk. The breed has several other unusual qualities, such as black skin and bones, blue earlobes, and five toes on each foot. They are often exhibited in poultry shows appearing in many colors, and types. We have chosen both the bearded and non bearded breeds in many colors and types to share with the world.

Silkies are considered a light breed of chicken (approx 1.5kg to 2 kg) and arrived from China. They do lay several different colored eggs and can be expected to produce between 100 to 120 before becoming broody. The hens are legendary for their brooding and mothering instincts and stories abound of silkie hens hatching and caring for other breeds of chickens, ducks and geese, as well as their own chicks. Many Silkie owners believe that they are the best natural incubator you can use.

Alabama Silkies has one of the world's finest collections of "one of a kind silkies" with grandchickens in all 50 states, and 20+ countries around the world. We love silkies so much we always say it three times. "Silkie Silkie Silkie".

HATCHING EGGS:

Alabama Silkies hatching eggs. Silkie Silkie Silkie When you order an assortment of Alabama Silkies specialty hatching eggs, you may get one of our awesome one of a kind sizzled silkies that people from all over the world brag about on Facebook and Instagram.

All our eggs are gathered many times through out the day and inspected for integrity in the shell's natural bloom. This is the invisible film that is nature's best defense to prevent air and bacteria from entering the egg.

The eggs are then placed pointed side down in the hatchery until the final inspection before shipping of the airsac's attachment, which must be properly sized, placed and maintained. This is very vital as the air sac supplies air to the growing chick while stabilizing the pressure and removing waste. Chicks can form and actually hatch if this becomes detached during shipping with a little skill, but no egg is shipped in this state by us.

Finally, we look for a nice big yolk sitting stationary in the middle of the egg to provide nutrition for our little grandchickens during the 21 day incubation process.

Also, we NEVER ship pears or footballs. And our eggs will not have thin spots or ridges. Some eggs may have a little body checking, but it is very minimum if any at all is present as these eggs will hatch perfectly fine without any troubles. Your eggs will be randomly selected from our White, Black, Buff, Blue, Partridge and Painted silkie houses. You should be able to get a nice variety of colors.
