I know nothing about Silkie's, but I think they look great. Tried to pm you, your inbox is full. Might want to clear it out.

Re: What quality is my White Silkie roo?

I am no expert by an means but from what I have read and the few I have seen at shows. I think your rooster is okay qualilty, i assume he is still young. As they are slow grower he will fill out more, but he has nice dark skin and reasonable silkied feathers. I can't see his ear lobes, but I hope they are blue and the 5th toe does it point upwards and have clear seperation from the other toes. Oh maybe need some work on his comb as it looks somewhat like a cushion and should be walnut.

I reall like hen #2 she has the nice silkie body shap and beautiful beard, nice skin and look really fluffy. If you were to bath her and fluff her feathers out she would be a giant puff ball.

Hen #1 looks good, but again maybe a bit young so needs some more time to fill out.

I think you have some good quality birds and they should give you some nice chicks. Other than the slightly off comb on the rooster I think they are super nice birds.

Hopefully an experinced person can give you some info and pointers.

Re: What quality is my White Silkie roo?

Thanks for the reply k.r.l, the rooster is from this spring I think, so he is still young. One of the hens is a 2009 hatch and the other a 2010 hatch I just dont know which is which. Maybe thats why one is a bit smaller looking then the other. I'll check the roosters earlobes this afternoon.
