    I don't know if they are or not... They may not even be close to show quality.
    We got them from Cackle Hatchery.
    They have all of their toes, no deformities, no special needs, they're all looking healthy (except for Sammy, she's a little bit underweight), making lots of noise, they have all of their feathers, etc.
    They're all around 7 or 8 months.

    My questionable Silkie hen, Sammy:

    (She wouldn't stay still.)

    My questionable Silkie rooster, Cloud:

    My questionable Polish rooster, Zazoo:

    (He doesn't like to stay still, so I only got pictures of his left side)

    My other questionable Polish rooster who doesn't have a name. (We may get rid of him and I didn't want to name something that we aren't keeping):

    Wow, those silkies are very impressive for hatchery birds! I think both look very good. Sorry, I don't know anything about Polish.

    Does anyone know if the second Polish rooster is worth keeping?
    I know that we're keeping the first one because he's my mom's favorite and she says we HAVE to keep him.
    The second is more dominant, but I've never seen them fight.

    My eyes have gotten feeble I guess, but no pictures came up, no blue lines to follow, just javascript.
    I'm certain their lovely though! [​IMG]

    Here's some more pictures... They would look "fluffier", but it's sprinkling and they went out of the barn for a bit.
    These pictures also include all of my silkies. There's six total... The two I posted were just my favorites.

    And here are some better pictures of the second rooster... I would have taken more of the first rooster, but he ran off somewhere.

    If we do get rid of the second rooster, should we sell him? How much do you think we could sell him for if we did?

    And what do you think about the Polish hen? Again, it's raining/sprinkling, so apologies for her crest...It's usually more voluminous, upright, pretty, and such... I will try to get better pictures another day.
