Are Red Silkies supposed to be taller and have fuller tails than other Silkies?

You've just got some silkies which weren't bred to the standard of perfection, could be a mix, but likly just random breeding.

I'm no expert, there is always something to learn, and my birds are livestock, so... yes, I may be quite blunt. wink.png
