    Jerry is at least 6 months old and has good markings on him. I have 3 paint boys right now so I am letting Jerry go so someone else can have a chance to work with the paint project. If you need a black pullet, I might have one to go with him for an extra $50. As a reminder, this is a work in progress and his siblings are throwing paint chicks along with black and blue ones. If you have any questions, please PM me. Thanks.

    How are his toes? Do you expect him to fill out more? Skull ~ is it vaulted? Is he just pet quality or breeder quality? Any pictures of the black pullet?

    Quote:The cockerel has 5 toes. I don't know what his parents look like so I can't tell you if he will fill out more or not but I would guess that he is pretty much full grown by now. His skull is not vaulted.

    Paints are considered project birds so I don't dare start labeling birds on their quality. This is an opportunity for someone who wants to start breeding paints and the girl(s) you put him with should improve the quality of the offsprings if the girl(s) have all of the right silkie traits but there's no guarantee since there is alot of unknowns in paint breeding.

    Here's a picture of the black pullet.

    Hi Anh,
    I am pretty sure that he is NOT full grown and will do a LOT more filling out!! Reason being that his siblings are STILL
    growing and filling out like crazy so I'm sure he has a lot more to do also. [​IMG]

    If he is anything like his brothers he will for sure be a humper too [​IMG]
