Fertilised Silkie Eggs

Details  Silkies are the sweetest, fluffiest chickens and make fantastic pets. They have a docile nature and if handled from a young age make excellent 'lap chickens'. They require all the same care as regular chickens, but because they have special fluffy feathers that look like fur, they need a dry place to keep out of the rain. Their feathers can become saturated with water quite quickly. Once their feathers get too wet they can get chilled and this could lead to health problems. So it is important they have shelter from wet weather.

We currently have fertilised eggs available for purchase. Pickup from Blockhill. The eggs are from Mottle Silkies. We will also have unsexed silkie babies ready to go to loving homes at the beginning of November 2021, once they are 8 weeks old.

If you would like to come meet our two Mottle Silkies and their babies, or if you would like to buy some fertilised eggs then please get in touch by filling out the form below, or email melisa@blockhill.co.nz

A wild storm

Today it was calm and mild and not very cold at all. But then around midday, I heard a strange rumbling sound that didn't quite sound like traffic on the road. It was a bit deeper and had more of a rumble to it....almost like thunder.

Brownie

Brownie

On Saturday morning we found that another one of our chooks had been killed by a ferret. This time it was 'Brownie'...my favourite chook who was quite friendly. She used to follow me around quite closely out in the paddock and even let me pet her a couple of times. In her time with us she hatched two chickens. She was a nice little chook.

One!

Oh, and speaking of the clucky hen. She finally got out of her nest box to eat some grain yesterday. Turns out she's been sitting on just ONE egg this whole time. That's right...ONE. We took it away and fed it to the cat because it didn't really seem worth it. The egg was still like a normal egg and wasn't turning into a chick at all. Gibson loves raw scrambled egg so he slurped it up quite readily. Now the clucky chook is sitting on another single egg that one of the black hens layed. So hopefully she'll get off soon and we can take it.
