    A few weeks ago we went to our breeder friends to get a couple black silkies and we picked up this chocolate silkie. I have never seen one before and can't find anyone else that does! I would like to find him a hen somewhere but noone has ANY! Anyway...here is our beautiful man! I tell my husband he has pretty hair than I do!

    That roo is seriously beautiful! I'm not a big fan of silkies, but if I could get some with that coloring, I would seriously consider it!

    Congrats on him!

    He is a very nice looking bird..

    But he is not pure silkie..

    Silkies have black skin, including wattles and comb.. And I believe they do not have white ear lobes..
    He is not pure, but he is so good looking and unusual though..

    Well I wouldnt have passed him up..

    See if your breeder friend has any idea what mix he is. Maybe that way you can find a mate for him.. Maybe create your own breed. He is defiently different looking.. I like his comb..

    Hope my other post didnt affend you any..
    He really is a nice bird..

    That is a pretty bird and you need to pass on those genes.... and improve upon them.
