    She's very pretty, but I don't show birds, so other than just saying she's adorable, I am no help!

    If showing her in showmanship then she will be alright. If showing in American Poultry Association approved shows...she won't have a chance. She looks like a hatchery bird, but a cute one!

    Well, first off:
    Her crest is very short/narrow for a show bird.
    Her beard is very small.
    Her leg feathering is a bit sparser than I'd like.

    Does she have a vaulted skull? (Bump underneath where her crest is?)

    This, in my opinion, is a good silkie for APA sanctioned shows:
