    I have a chance to buy a nice pair of Silvers fairly cheep. The only problem with them is that the male has crooked toes on both feet. It don't interfer with his moving ability at all. I have heard that this problem is fairly common with silver pheasants and is not passed on to later generations but I don't know for sure. Is anyone familiar with this problem? Thanks
