    Do anyone else on here own non-bearded silkies? Can I see pictures of them? Do you show them any differently than bearded silkies? (besides marking the variety as non-bearded on the entry form)

    I don't show my birds, but I imagine they're what they call "pet quality" anyway, which is just fine for me. Out of my five Silkies, only one is bearded, and hers isn't much of a beard. Here are a few of my non-bearded:

    Most if not all silkies that are shown in NZ are of the non bearded variety (we do have the standard, but we don't have the chickens).
