    From reading their ad, I assume they mean silkies. I read before that silkies are often used for medicinal purposes in many fields of medication or something like that.

    Definitely Silkies. 5 toes, black skin, come from China, and white was the original color.

    definitely a silkie, but it sounds like they are from Asia, and want to breed them for eating. its odd that they say not in freezer, and that they want them alive. [​IMG]
