    is the color on these silkies good? Would they be good to breed?

    Thanks!

    How old are they ? You don't want to make any decisions too soon because it takes a long time for them to mature. are their toes well spaced ? good toes are hard. their crests may fill in more as they get older. they sure are cute.

    Thanks.

    They are still fairly young. Not sure how old. They still have feathers coming in on their crest. I haven't check the toe spacing yet.
