    So this is my juvenile silkie, bout 2 months old. Im new to breeding but this certainly doesnt seem like a normal silkie walnut comb???

    Appreciate your thoughts :lol:

    Is your silky from a hatchery? Or a mix? I wouldn't advice using it for breeding, the comb is a disqualification

    Agreed, that comb would be a DQ in the show ring. But, its not an issue if you're just keeping it as a pet.

    One thing I can say about that comb, its BIG. I'd be willing to guess you've probably got a little cockerel there...
