    Ok, I show guinea pigs and follow the Standard or Perfection published by the ARBA to breed mine and exhibit. I am not interested in actually showing silkie chickens .... do show silkie guinea pigs. However, after learning with many animals to apreciate a good confirmation - or set standard, I wondered if someone could explain the SOP for silkies. I don't plan on buying a SOP, just curious. We currently have a rag tag trio of silkies originally from Ideal. I love their personalities and all, but they just are not as nice looking at the show quality ones I see on some. I just plopped in a batch of eggs from Jenlynn4 so I have some good ones hopefully on the way.

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    Do you want the written standard- out of the book? or my interpretation out of it? Email me, I can send you a picture of my Hen and Roo- and tell you what is wrong with them, and what I need to fix..
