    Thanks Peepsblessed! I LOVE that roo! He is 2 years old and no leakage at all! He has to have his crest trimmed so he can see the girls, but he has a lovely crest too (if I let it grow lol).

    Cute whites everyone! I would love to add whites someday but am focusing on my blacks, lavenders, and black splits for now. :)

    What a great combo to focus on! I am doing BBS and just starting with lavender and "porcelain". So much fun I can't hardly stand it!! [​IMG] (This is the crazy chicken lady!) I also have some long term plans with partridge.

    I just had my broodies hatch out some silkie chicks - 5 of them do not have vaulted heads, but 1 did. These are obviously pet quality silkies - but I'm sure my kids will think they're great.

    My question is about the 5 without the vaulted crest - do they have the same vulnerability to being pecked on the head that the vaulted crest silky has?

    Thanks!
    Bobbie
