    Or are silkies and showgirls bred for looks and not brains? XD

    Well my silkie certainly isn't the brightest chicken in the coop.

    a lot has to do with their beards and crests, people mistake their obscured vision behaviors with stupidity. When their beards and crests are cut back and they can see, their IQ takes a leap upward. Even so they will never be members of Mensa.

    i have a showgirl with no beard and her creast is not really that big and somehow she scratch the back of her neck when i was hooding her and she tried (annd failed) to fly off. I know the things with the crest and beards make things special but when they don't learn to roost no matter how hard one tries to make them...
