    Hello-
    I wasn't quite sure which category this question would fall under, but I was wondering how common the following coloured silkies are; Buff, Violet, White, Black, Partridge, Red, Paint, Grey, Blue, Porcelain.

    Are there any that are more rare/valued than others? Thanks!

    GOOD solid nice coloured Buff's are Really hard to get a hold of in my area, and porcelains are pretty rare. I am friends with a breeder who works with Whites, Paints and Black so they're not as rare in the area, though EVERYONE has trouble getting a nice solid buff. Partridges are not favored around here as much as I love them, and blues are never show quality around here.

    It all depends on area, and how many silkie breeders breed GOOD silkies around there.
