    How is the quality of this silkie out of 10? 10 being the best and 1 being low quality. What do you guys think? He is a partridge. Debating getting rid of him.

    Awww, if he has a nice personality and you are not going to show I think he's a keeper [​IMG] Then again I have a tough time getting rid of any of my silkies [​IMG]

    Thats my problem too. But none of the other birds like him. He is last to eat. And he is noisy. But like you said its hard to say goodbye they have personalities.

    A 3 is generous. I was thinking 2.

    But if he has a nice personality, don't just get rid of him, just don't use him for breeding. He seems very sweet.
