    Ok so I gave up on finding my girls a Silkie for 4-H. They are fighting like heck over my little Showgirl so I went to the showgirl breeder to get a second girl and somehow had to have this little Silkie that she had as well. It has good feet and spacing from what I can tell, I think it is adorable but have been shown to be wrong [​IMG] .. Regardless it is staying as MY baby lol. It looks a little different then the pictures of the bitties I have seen here. I am thinking its because its just young and its fluff is coming in.. What do you think. If needed tomorrow I will try to get better pics.

    Birds young, so hard to judge really, but the toe placement/seperation on the right side (left foot) could be much better. They should not be side by side like that. Ideal toe placement is the fourth and fifth toes are not connected at all, and the fifth toe curves backwards.

    Toe placement may not be perfect, but it is not bad, and perfect feet only accounts for 4 out of 100 points; certainly not something to stress over. Better to pay more attention to areas that have more impact.
