    That is my understanding as well Peep. Like I have a blue boy who is lovely. I certainly consider him BQ. However, his wings are a little loose, so not really SQ. BUT, if I breed him to a girl with nice tight wings hopefully the babies will inherit the wings from mama.

    When you start a project you must have a goal for a standard. This standard is composed of several qualities. These qualities must be breed together from males and females. Seeing these different qualities is one thing, knowing how they inherit is an other thing. So it comes to knowing what full, semi and absent qualities your breeding birds contain and still need to brought in and in what way you will pass them to their chicks.

    Keeping Silkies is a sport
    Breeding Silkies is a skill
    Breeding TOP Silkies is an ART.
