    Hi, just wanted to know what any of you think of this rooster I just recently got. He is a buff rooster, 8 months old. I think he is show quality but wanted to be sure and my neighbor told me to come here to find out.

    I will be interested in selling him if he is, since he is the only silkie that I have right now.


    I fixed it for ya. You were combining HTML tags and BBcode together... BBcode by itself is all you need. Just click on "edit" in this post to see what I did. ~Lisa~

    I am trying to figure out this picture thing. Seems like the other one didn't work so maybe this one will

    No, his comb is too red and his crest is too small. His back is too long and his foot feathering isn't very good. On the plus side, his wings are nice and tight and his plumage colour looks very nice.

    Sorry if that wasn't what you wanted to hear [​IMG]

    Also, his earlobes should be turquoise and his comb should be smaller.
