I have been biten by the silkie bug, and would like to start building a flock toward showing them. I have a pair of whites (pullet and roo) and a black roo, and will be getting some chicks this coming week. I'm worried that the whites have vulture hocks, but the black looks good to me. What do you think? This is a roo of unknown age A pullet, not laying yet, also of unknown age One of our guys, about six months and still working on his crow. He looks a little silver in the sun, but is actually a really deep black with green and purple shine.
