    I bought a trio of silkies at a show, and one young 5 month old girl ended up being a Rooster. So now since I have 2 roosters and only one girl, who should be her partner?

    Mr. I Don't Have A Name Yet Or "Snowflake" (that works for girls and boys right?)

    Not in Show form right now, sorry!

    They are very similar in appearance. Pick whichever one is sweetest to the girls. [​IMG]

    *Disclaimer* I don't know squat about silkies and their type, but I'm gonna throw my $.02 in anyway. I think the first one is better looking than the second. I like the shape of his body better, his comb, and the fullness of the fluff in his beard area.
