    I picked up a silkie roo for only $5 the other day, i needed him for my silkie hen.
    What do you all think? I DONT care if hes not showing quality, i just want to know if you think hes good looking? I dont know much about how silkies should look yet.

    Sorry i dont have any feet pictures right now

    THANKS!!!!

    He is handsome! I love my Silkies. [​IMG] Does he have a single comb or a walnut comb? I can't see really well in the picture - they're supposed to have walnut combs, but single combs pop up here and there.

    Seriously, that is one funky comb! I love that thing! Can you get a close up? Am I just seeing things or is that a mal-formed walnut comb? He's a very pretty boy, even though he is clean-faced. He still has better feathering than any of my Silkies have ever had, and that's saying something. [​IMG]

    here is a walnut comb.

    He looks like he has a single comb. He is pet quality for sure, but that doesnt matter if they are just pets.

    Remember to keep him in quarantine for at least 30 days.
