    Is he hatchery?

    He appears non bearded and he should have a lot better leg and foot feathering. Small crest.

    Nice bird for a pet though.... [​IMG]

    If you are looking for a better quality bird you need to buy from a breeder to aspires to standard of perfection/

    I got some beautiful birds from Melanie at Fluff N Stuff out of NY. They were mixed colors but let me tell you, the feathering, the poofs and the conformation are really fabulous.
    Your little fella is a cutie but if you are wanting closer to show quality a breeder is the way to go. There are a lot of wonderful Silkie breeders here on BYC and you can get great birds from them.
