    I was pleased with this one so I kept it to see how it would fill out. I had 3 but I sold off 2 as a pair. I would love opinions. He is available also see my siggy [​IMG] he is young still so should fill in a lot more [​IMG] and he has been living outside so he is a little stained and dirty.

    Silkies all look alike to me. Until it crows, I don't know. Sorry.

    He looks like he's going to be a pretty boy.

    Nice bird. Looks like his comb might go a little red though.

    Quote:so far all the brothers before him have had mulberry combs not combs as red as my main roo (sire) (Fuzzy Apple) as I have selected only really black combed pullets and hens for him to breed with in hopes that the red goes to mulberry in the new generations. I could replace Fuzzy Apple with a better roo but I just love him so much that I cant seem to do it. I have desided to get some white eggs from another BYC member and will add a cockerel from that hatch (if all goes well) to the flock that is is Fuzzy is ok with it, and a few more girls to make sure each have enough to keep busy.
