I have managed to talk my DS out of BBs. We've been going through everything we can find on the diff breeds and we're looking at Blue Ameraucanas. Any Pros/Cons as a choice for show breed? My Pros so far include faster maturing, more readily available and pullets not suitable for show could be kept for pretty blue eggs. My DD will be starting next year. She want's silkies and of course a "pink" showgirl. We can't seem to convince her it wasn't born looking like that. Everything I'm finding points to silkies being good as a show breed. Downside, she likes the splash and partridge the best. I haven't determined if those are the best colors to go with. I find more info for white,black and grey. Any advice or alternative suggestions welcome.
