    Hi Ryan,
    I'm as puzzled by the article on silkies as you are. It only mentions whites but I've seen all sorts of colors boasting about winning awards. I'm curious too!

    I knew i wasn't the only one noticing that!!!! On ASBC's website all it says you can show is white and it has to be bearded i've also seen many people with prize winning silkies that were many colors not only white!!

    It only lists a portion of the standard; not the entire standard. At one point all the varieties were listed; I assume it is a copyright issue.
