    She was hatched in May of this year so she is around 6 months old. I purchased hatching eggs from another breeder, and hatched out 3. 1 male and 2 females.

    Her toes are perfect by the way.

    She's cute! Reminds me of a feather duster with legs.

    Thanks. [​IMG]

    Anybody else?

    This is a rooster that I also hatched from the eggs. What do you think about him?

    I love them both, good tight wings, great color, nice foot feathering. You did very well. Good ratio in your hatch. It usually works just the opposite for me.

    Thanks. [​IMG] Their under color is pretty good.

    At first I was thinking I got 2 roos and a hen, but luckly the other "roo" turned out to be a hen. Just not with a gigantic crest like this one. But her coloring is great, so is her foot feathering, and she is virtually clear buff. I think I will pair her with this rooster next year to see what I get.

    I got the eggs from Sassy Silkies, which I highly recommend. [​IMG]
