    Definitely NOT paint. I agree with columbian probably the best I've seen for a ilkie for matching the SOP for columbian.

    Thank you. He is beautiful, and we have been wondering about his coloring. His comb is a little bit redder than the other roosters, is that a trait of the columbian colored silkies? He is going to be offered for sale, but I wanted to get some opinions on his color to know how to advertise him.
