    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Your Silkies are beautiful birds, but I'm far from an expert when it comes to show birds. I would suggest posting closeups pics of them on our Exhibition, Genetics, & Breeding to the Standard of Perfection section at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/16188/exhibition-genetics-breeding-to-the-standard-of-perfection and letting our show experts there take a look at them. Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in showing your Silkies.

    Do you mean a contest like the "Most talented pets," or "Pet tricks." Do they do any tricks?

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you.

    If you post some more photos in the Exhibition, Genetics, and Breeding to the Standard of Perfection forums, I'm sure you'll get lots of help. I'll be happy to check out pictures of your birds as well, as I know a bit about selecting show quality birds and showing.
