    There isn't a difference. That is just where the breed originated long ago!

    He is wanting $30.00 for 4, I asked him if he would take $20.00, he said no because they are japanese silkies, so he must be saying that so he wouldn't have to take less money, which os ok just had to ask. Thanks

    I figured that is why he said that.. But not knowing him, I didn't want to jump to conclusions on an open forum. But regardless, $30 for 4 isn't a bad price unless they are just on the low end of even being pet quality.

    I paid $40 each for PQ silkies, so $30 for 4 (even if they are bad quality) isn't a bad price at all.
