    I'm thinking about the silkies mostly... do these look like good quality? I want SQ and I want to breed them. Not very confident about choosing Seramas yet, I just discovered them and now I MUST have some. These people are almost close to me.

    Thanks!

    Hard to tell from the pictures, but make sure they are breeding for yellow legs and red earlobes. Right now the only color accepted by the ABA is white. Backs should be V shaped which is hard to tell from a photo. Print out a copy of the standard from either SCNA or ASA. Remember most people are not going to sell you their best birds. With time and effort you can breed what you want and be proud to win at shows with your birds. One of my 2 yr old boys that I sold to a 4H member just beat my favorite rooster at a show this weekend. I was sad, but proud too!! Good Luck. Donna

    oh cool! If you havnt already gone yet(i know it was about a week ago you replied to me) there are so many choices and the people who own them are very nice! Look on my profile pictures, they are the only polish and serama pictures on there. I got 1 frizzle cockerel, 1 blue pullet, and 1 each of chocolate and black pulet, of polish. They are such pretty birds, all my friends just love my frizzle and my blue pullet is very nice, hopefully ill show her if she is pretty when shes a little older. I also got two serama pullets, which are super sweet and very nice looking. Surprisingly all the chickens are very calm and tame!

    I'm glad you had a good experience! I don't think they have quite what I'm looking for, but it's good to keep in mind!
