    Wow! Tough judge! Even though the standard calls for a medium crest it's my understanding that some judges only want a huge crest. Your girl has great type! I think whites have the toughest competition. Hopefully the judge gave you some pointers and didn't just say he's no good. You must have had your hopes way up after the last show. That is so hard...

    Thanks. Thanks everyone. I have thought I should probably put her up for auction, as she is nice and someone
    who loves splash as much as I do white might want her. Problem is she is too sweet! She's my favorite as far as
    personality so to speak. A cuddler and talker too...sigh.

    Thanks!! All I remember the judge saying was that the white silkies were just average especially compared to the blue pullet, when we showed him which white silkies are ours.He said something about them being bad, but I can't remember since its been a looong day. He didn't even explain to me why the white ones are bad, that's why I posted on here to see if there was anything wrong with him [​IMG].




    Thanks! I just hope my next show isn't as bad as this one was.

    I know it's got to be hard to do but I think it's really important to ask the judge for details, then if you don't agree with him you make sure you don't show under that judge again.

    Well, before you sell your Splash, take a look at my baby girl here on the right! She was sired by a dark blue w/gold leakage, and out of a Blue Splash (I say blue splash, NOT partridge splash) hen. He was the only roo in the pen, and I watched my Splash girl lay the egg and marked it immediatly! Now the roo was born with the typical Partridge markings (chipmunk stripes), but then turned dark blue with the autosomal red leakage. I don't know how it all adds up genetically speaking, but this is what I got!
