    Does anyone know of any books that have A LOT of info on silkies or are completely devoted to them?

    I would love to find something that shows what a good silkie looks like, and if you were competing what they judges would look for, etc.

    At this time the only thing available is the information contained in the APA Standard of Perfection. There isn't a booked devoted to Silkies that I know of at this point. The Standard of Perfection will tell you what the disqualifications are.

    Other than that you can attend a local show, or talk with local breeders in your area, to find out what judges look for.
