    Last year hatched 6 silkies, 5 turned out roosters. Anyways I sold 2, and there are 4 left (3 roosters and 1 girl), so I am only keeping 1 rooster for now (since I just hatched out about a dozen new chicks). I want to know about the comb (to help me decide which to sell), bc they all have different combs, so I want to know which is good or not?

    These FIRST 3 ARE SILKIE 1

    [​IMG]
    THIS IS SILKIE 2
    NOTICE THE REDDISH HUE AND IT HAS POINTIER PROMINENCES

    [​IMG]
    THIS IS THE LAST ONE SILKIE 3



    OVERALL I LIKE THE FIRST SILKIE (SILKIE 1) MOSTLY BC IT IS NICER. THE BBS ROOSTER (SILKIE 3) always runs away and i dont like it bc it seems to alarm the others.

    AND I WANT TO KNOW IF POSSIBLE WHICH HAS WALNUT VS SINGLE COMB.

    thanks
