This is a Blue Silkie Bantam Hen.
I'm wondering what you guys think of her disposition.

Here is my Buff Silkie rooster, what do you think of his disposition.

For the blue silkies position I would
Need a full body position.
Here's a shot of one of my black silkies
That I need of your silkies to tell you if
Her position is good


With what I can see her wattles are too big
And arnt mulberry colour
Also she should have a blue ear lobe

For the rooster I also need a closer up picture like
the example I showed you of mine
try not too much light coming
In behind because I can't see the roosters head clearly

Goodluck
I breed and show
Gold partridge pekin bantam
Coronation Sussex bantam
Barbu d'Anver quail colour

Hi
The silkie rooster cannot be shown
Because he has a red come which is a major fault
So won't win anything

As for the hen her wattles are too big
And are not the dark mulberry colour as they should be
Which is also another major fault
Just as bad as the red wattles
Her Pom on her head should be more round.
She also dosent have much of a tail bump
Like my silkie
With makes her look too flat
Her stance and body should also
Be more pronnounced

I personally wouldent show these or breed them
As they might pass on these traits

Also one last question how many toes do they have?

I hope this helps

Do you know of any good silkie breeders? I'm looking to breed and show silkies, but I need private breeder chickens to do that
