    I have looked on here but have never seen a silkie roo with single comb and large wattles. So get a normal looking roo for breeding purposes?

    Your silkie is the beardless type. Most of the silkies pictured on BYC are bearded and don't show their waddles. It is commom for hatchery silies (often sold at feed stores) to have comb problems. [​IMG]
