    They are soooo pretty!! I think partridge silkies are the prettiest of all silkies. I have two partridge silkie roos and they are gorgeous!

    The hen looks nice, the rooster's comb looks a bit large and I'm not sure if he's wet or not, but his crest could be a bit larger. Do you have any other pics of them?

    They both have very nice partridge coloration. [​IMG]

    I can't see them well enough in that picture to really have a comment. Their color looks good but Maybe you could get some different poses. I would love to see them.

    I would Love to see better Photo Qaulity, but from what I can see they look beautiful The rooster appears to have very big soiledd color blotches-I dont think I've ever seen that before! He's beautiful. I Love the Hens Top Hat [​IMG]

    Henry- From My experience Silkie Hens make the Greatist little Friends They just seem to almost bond closer than other breeds. I've had several inseprable pairs-A second silkie hen is a wonderful idia!

    The Best Bird I ever owned was a Par. Silkie Roo the sweetest most Tolerant rooster I've ever met. I recently Lost a Partridge hen that was closly bonded with my white hen, and Just could'nt go without one in the flock. Here's her Predacessor Michiko-She's Five months old now.
