    [​IMG] so sorry you had to learn that lesson the hard way....

    If you want QUALITY birds, you'll need to learn the Standard of Perfection. Any bird you consider buying, you should physically/visually inspect from head to toe.

    When I first started with Silkies, I didn't really know the difference in quality either.... [​IMG] you should see some of the ones I came home with...still have most of them; they're "pets", not allowed to breed, but have a forever home with me.

    Try attending some of the Fall shows, most breeders bring birds for sale too.
    Good luck
