    Hello I was wondering if my silkie look good so far for showing later she's about a month and a half old. I was mainly concerned with her toes.[​IMG]

    Showing birds is very competitive. Only the very, very best birds, bred from breeder stock and highly selective breeding can produce a bird that reflects the APA Standard for the breed so well that showing is in order. Plus, the birds have to be perfectly groomed and prepared for showing.

    Where did you get this bird? From a top breeder?
    If not, it would be very, very unlikely.
