    Both are still young, The black rosecomb is crowing and the silkie I'm pretty sure is a girl. Let me know what you think about them....

    To really evaluate the rosecomb male we need a picture where he is standing naturally and not crowing. My hunch is he is better than an average hatchery black rosecomb, but not going to be a show winner. From what i can see he doesn't have red bleeding into his lobes and doesn't have white bleeding into his face. His lobes are really round from what I can see and I like the fact that the spike on his comb bends up slightly. That is a good trait.

    As far as the silkie she is not show quality. She is better than some hatchery birds but nothing ultra special.
