    Hi everyone,
    I just traded one of my younger serama roosters for this splash silkie rooster from a local breeder. I've been hoping to get this color in my flock for quite a while, and I'm super excited about him. He's been in the flock for only a couple days and already gets along great with all my other silkies in the same pen. He's only five months old, so he has a little feathering out to do, but I thought I'd share a couple photos of him. I can't wait to see some chicks from him! Anyone else have some adorable silkies (or any breed, for that matter!) that they'd like to share photos of?

    Not splash - Post his photo on the "Silkie thread," and I'm sure something there will have a name for his coloring.

    He looks blue to me, but I could be wrong. :) What a gorgeous bird!
