    I have 4 lavender silkie roosters. 5 months old right now. Got these from a hatchery. They are descent quality. They seem to be mixed with something other than silkie somewhere in the generations to get the color. Solid bodies on the small side. Not really fluffy but the coloring is very nice. Together with a good quality hen you would get some very nice babies. I know I looked all over and could never find lavenders. This is a great chance to add this to your breeding line-up. I have too many roosters and need to re-home these guys ASAP.

    Hello- yes they are. Very sweet and very solid. We actually ended up with 7. We have 4 left...2 of which look like they are mixed with something other than silkie. They came from a hatchery. Coloring is really good...crests not so good but together with a good quality hen will make beautiful babies.
