Hi there, I was at a poultry show this past weekend and noticed this silkie was for sale, I talked to the person who owned it and breeds silkies and they said they would be willing to sell it to me for $20, because they need to downsize their flock. Can anybody tell me if this would be a good show quality silkie or just a backyard pet, or if it is even worth the $20? (It is a hen about a year old)
As you can probably tell I am very new to this breed and don’t really know what to look for.

I show and exhibit show quality silkies and other breeds! That silkie isn’t terrible but wont do good in show! She needs a bigger fuller crest and better foot feathering, she needs to have 5 toes on each foot and a walnut comb! I also don’t think she is worth $20 bc mine were 25 and are proving themselves!
