has anyone got a pic of a bearded silky and unbearded silky?
every breed and then some with tons of pics can be found here..http://www.feathersite.com/
I've been searching different sites and BYC, too, and I'm having trouble finding the difference between bearded and non-bearded Silkies. Is it that non-bearded have no feathers at all on their heads??
Non-bearded whites. These guys are bad examples of Silkies as far as crest and feet, but they are definitely non-bearded.
And you don't trim them at all, right?
No, lol. The crest on the 2 non bearded were slightly trimmed by the roo they were in.

Bearded vs non bearded is just that. Whither they have beards or not. They will still have crests. A non bearded will have a chin like a regular chicken while a bearded will have a chin like an EE or something.
Quote:I give mine a mohawk haircut, otherwise they cannot see much at all and as they are freeranging they tend to run into anything from the bike lying where it isnt supposed to be to the clothesline pole!ouch, plus they can now see the predators hanging around!
Quote:My Song-Sung seems to make his way around all right, but I do wonder sometimes. I think his propensity to stay where I put him might have something to do with his impaired visibility. Do you use a horse whisker shaver? I imagine you got them used to the sound first?
