Being new to all this, I recently joined the American Silkie Breeders Club and am trying to read everything I can get my hands on. In regard to the above post, I understand the concern of purchasing birds that appear to meet standards but may carry genes with "hidden" problems such as split wings.

Wouldn't this allow a breeder to be more educated about new stock where they can easily see 4-5 generations of parentage? Tina
