    Silkie coloration

    Hi all! I'm wondering what you think of this silkie roo of mine. He's got a silver/red/partridge coloring with tan/brown spots on his wing feathers. He's obviously not show quality but I think he's just gorgeous! I've never seen any other silkie that looks like this! Thoughts?
