    Is she show quality? Let me know what you think. Also keep in mind her eyes have been trimmed a little underneath so she could see her new surroundings.

    Her back is a little long and her cushion could be bigger, but she has nice coloring, good foot feathering, nice beard, decent crest, tight wing carriage...she is a nice bird. She's at least breeder quality.

    Thanks guys! Can you believe I got her for $10. I love her. I think she beautiful. I put her out with the other chickens and she just fit right in with them. No hen pecking, no nothing. My girls just accepted her and my boys were peering longingly through the rooster pen fence. LOL

    I am thinking about washing and blow drying her to see how she looks. They look so pretty and clean after you have washed them. [​IMG]

    I think she looks rather nice. I am just getting into show silkies i have other breeds but never had silkies and they are the sweetest birds i have ever had and i have had alot of breeds over the years.
