    Be kind and gentle, please. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I've been working on various articles and one that I had taken from another publisher wanted Types of Silkie Chickens. Since then, I tried writing something on it, but disliked the comments of a particular editor and decided to publish the article on Associated Content as variations of Silkie Chickens. [​IMG] One problem I had was that there weren't any photos of Silkies in public domain or available through creative commons. If you feel you can't stand another chicken photo up there and would be willing to let me use your own, let me know. [​IMG] I can't pay you, but I could give you credit.


    So, here's my question, I can still edit the article if its not "right" (some articles I can, some I can't). At this stage, I'd like your expertise [​IMG] because I get the feeling I've missed things. If you're really helpful, I can give your website credit in the references. [​IMG]


    Here's the article: Variations of Silkie Chickens .

    Huge thanks!

    There is one correction for your article. The ASBC would not be the organization that determines proper size for the American silkie. That information would be in the standard of perfection for the American poultry assoc. There are specific weights for roosters and hens.
