    If you have a show, enter them and see what the judge and other silkie breeders think about them.

    Sundown, what were the parents of these greys? They are stunning!

    The silkie club website is www.americansilkiebantamclub.com

    I think you need to be a club member to access the forums; I am certain that you have to be to post, not sure if they can be read by non-members, but I think that the answer is not. We do always welcome and encourage new members, and I will say that I do not believe it at all a replacement or in competition with BYC. THere are quite a few club members who are BYC members and participate here regularly.

    I am betting they are from Marjorie Best, right? I have a grey from her out in my barn, and she has nice grey cockerels too. I have a grey cockerel that popped out of a breeding of Mihali birds. His type is FANTASTIC but he has some miscoloration. I picked up the grey pullet to see how much of the miscoloration (some people are calling misidentifying it as 'calico') will pass on, because I just *love* his type.

    Marjorie has very nice grays, and she also has an older buff male cock that I like a lot. He's a gorgeous bird.

    I had grays pop out of my partridge birds this spring. They must have been carrying the recessive silver gene. Unfortunately my partridge male died and I can't find a nicely colored male anywhere. [​IMG]

    Donna McCormick has the best Greys i have ever seen, to bad she doesn't show or else you would see some awesome greys at the shows she attends. And I agree with you silkielover07, I cannot find any good partridge males especially for sale. I do believe Hattrick has the best colored males i have seen.
