    I have a free BEAUTIFUL black silkie cockerel is anyone would like him for some nice eye yard candy.
    I bought him as a youngin and he has wry tail so I can't use him.

    He is nice! It's a shame he has wry tail. It's always the really nice ones that end up getting or having something to the point you can't use them. That really sucks! [​IMG]

    Wry tail means the chicken, duck,etc has a crooked tail. It is genetic and a bird with wry tail should not be used in any breeding program for people that are going to be raising show stock or quality birds
