Than you have White, Black, Blue, Splash, Gray, Buff, and Partridge for color.
These colors are accepted.
Everything else is a AOV.

So what is a Non-Bearded Splash Silkie?


Colour and variety are NOT different; at least not as far as the standards consider.  Variety takes both physical differences such as comb type or muffs/beard presence/absence as well as plumage colour/patten into consideration.

As far as the silkies go, I agree with what George taught me.
You have the bearded variety and the non bearded variety and either variety can be any of the approved colors.

I will not even get into a who is right or wrong. But that is a huge debate at shows, lol I will have to bring it
up with my next phone call with Eric Kutch and hear what his take on it is.wink

I do not get involved with all the other breeds or colors of chickens. We specialize with the cochins and silkies.

I understand what you and George are saying, but that does not conform to the APA/ABA definitions of variety.  Single and rosecomb RIR are different varieties even though they are the same plumage colour.  Brown red and birchen are different varieties; wc black bearded polish and wc black non-bearded polish are different varieties; wc chocolate non-bearded polish and bc white non-bearded polish are different varieties.  Variety takes into account both plumage colours & pattern & also non-colour differences.

I agree with Sonoran.

Premier,
If you go to the front of the American Standard of Perfection you will find the ASoP's definition for Variety.

Variety:
A sub-divisioin of a breed. Differentiating characteristics include plumage color, comb type or presence of beard and muff.


With Silkies a Variety would be Bearded Black or Non-Bearded Black.

No. It is a joke between chickenwhisperer and I. He is not laughing because he thinks it is a dumb question.

I showed at a APA show this weekend and I had to enter my partridges, blues, and splashes in the AOV class. I thought Partridge and blue was an accepted color, so shouldnt they have had a "variety" of their own?
