Jason, I'm not a breeder, just an enthuasist of Silkies!
None of my Silkies are Breeder or Show Quality. I've searched several times & don't really find anyone in Missouri. Could be I'm not looking in the right places.
My Silkies came from Cackle Hatchery in Lebanon. I can see a distinct difference in the quality of mine as compared to some of the Breeders on the Silky threads.
Have you learned anything on Silkies in Missouri?
