I'll roll the dice with the guy for one generation as I am curious. You have to love/laugh at my wonderful craigslist find of "show quality" silkies Oh well wife adores them anyway. Just thinned out the clears from the 10 eggs that were set and due the 19th and 20th, so we have 7 viable from all four cockerels being set by three broody's. Funny that lady is still advertising them as such but I hope she has cleaned up her breeding pens for future customers.Just like trimming a dog's nails, only trim/file back to the quick. Left untrimmed it may further distort his beak. As far as breeding, I would be concerned of the genetic component especially if any of the hens are related to him. He is a beauty.
