    I have definitely seen that silkie and the seabright pics before elsewhere.
    What gives away that they are likely stolen is that they are on all different types of backgrounds

    I'll have to check out that website...another member did that WHOIS search for me already and I did contact their web hosting company...

    I think they took your picture down... At least it didn't show up when I went on their site. It was the only picture that wasn't there.
     
  7. I found the silkie on ehow telling their care. It also gave credit to the owner of the picture.

    http://www.ehow.com/how_4925411_care-silkie-chickens.html

    Here is the original silkie pick, from what I believe is the owner of the picture and silkie.

    http://www.silkiechickens.com/

    The picture is even water marked. So i guess if some one was smart enough with photo shop, water marks can be removed.

    ETA.. I emailed the owner of silkiechickens.com Hopefully they will request that their picture is removed also..
    That was my good deed for the day..

    Just did another search and found out that the owner of silkiechickens.com is also the President of The American Silkie Bantam Club

    Thanks for the heads-up on the picture thief - it has happened to me so many times, and I've been working my way through my site, watermarking everything, but apparently watermarks can be removed. Or perhaps the image that I provided for the ehow article wasn't watermarked and they just stole that one.
    I have sent an email demanding removal, and will check back to see. I'll also keep an eye on this thread to see if there is any more info.

    Thanks again!
