    I have three splash silkie roosters but only plan on keeping 2 - which would you choose....?

    they are in a pen with 2x black, 1x white & 2x white showgirls hens (all silkies)

    Clyde <<---- (he is staying, his comb is almost completely black)

    Our household gives:

    2 votes Clem
    1 vote Cletus

    But we have no breeding/showing experience, based on looks only. [​IMG]

    this is my toughest decision yet - they are all such sweet boys - they are handled and petted daily.....

    they don't have to be SQ - just want to have everyone set up correctly so maybe on day I can sell hatching eggs to help with the feed bill


    LOVE the family voting - We are doing that here on them except my 4 year old says they all stay
