    Critiques are always welcome of course [​IMG], but I really would like a color to call this guy. It is soooooooo hot here in Oklahoma, and my boy refused to pull his wings up, so they are lax in the photo, but he does have good tight wings.

    Is that a little red I see in the wing? It's hard to tell on my cell phone. He reminds me of April M.'s Salmon silkie, Mr. McSilkie less red in the wing.

    I have not seen one around here that looks like that but he sure does have great type.

    His coloring looks a lot like my Salmon Faverolle roosters coloring.

    He looks alot like his father and his father throws super nice offspring. I am hoping that he does the same. Their foot feathering is so heavy.

    Here's a couple of pics of the offspring that his father throws. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the same.

    Quote:Thank you..............I thought he had pretty good type. I wish it wasn't so hot, so I could get a pic of him with his wings held up. I don't blame him though, he is trying to keep cool, I think I could fry eggs outside it's so hot here. Much much hotter than last year.
