    She looks like a calico cat - random splotches of gray, red, black cream. Pics don't do justice.....

    There *are* calico silkies... Tho yes, your Silkie looks like a roo. I'd take him home if I lived closer to you. He's gorgeous.

    Thanks! He's from CJ in PA. I got some beautiful birds from her. I am growing everyone out for now but will have to place some of them at some point. Using 250 lbs feed each month, and that's with veggies, hay, and free range!
