    Please post pictures of good silkie feet and any buff silkie babies! I'm currently focusing on breeding buff and white silkies but I am new to silkies so I would love pictures and any information given on buff silkies, silkie feet, and all things show silkie related!

    Thanks!

    I too would like to know- I had Silkies as a kid, and have just ordered a bunch and intend to breed them for myself, and perhaps show them. I want to know what is considered good Silkie conformation- pictures would be GREAT!!!

    So... one the first toe, what would be a person's index finger, is it more or less desireable to have feathers????

    Quote:It's more desirable to have feathers on all 5 toes but at a minimum to the third toe especially if you want to show them. On Sundown silkies' photos, photos #2, 3 and 5 of the chicks' feet are excellent. There's good feathering on all 5 toes.

    Okay, what about four toes? I have a rooster who just beautiful and an absolute dollbaby! The only problem is he only has four toes [​IMG] I have been trying to decide what to do with him. I bought some other chicks from the same parents as him. When I was going through the chicks some had four toes, some had five. I picked all ones with five toes. Is it terrible to use him as a breeder? I know he has a five toed gene in there somewhere......[​IMG]
    I'm also a little leary about his five toed siblings, since obviously they have the four toed gene floating around.

    Opinions?

    Thanks
