Quote:shari, and everyone else, thank you for your input. the lady who gave them to me as a raffle prize said they were show quality. at first i thought they were non-bearded, or maybe he's just really young, but then realized they don't have a very big crest or beard compared to what i'm used to. actually, my hatchery silkies have more foot feathering and bigger crest, just not as good feathering on their wings. lol. i'm keeping the girl cuz she went broody on me the other day and i just didn't want to take her off her eggs. i did sell the boy at the sale this past weekend to a wonderful couple. the lady said she's going to keep him in her house.
