Well, I am guessing they are partridge silkies. Where did you get the eggs, if I may ask? They are lovely. I've been shopping online all afternoon for a partridge silkie rooster. :( I just don't know if any of them are as pretty as the roosters I lost. [HYPERLINK@www.youtube.com]
Please excuse the floor, I had pulled up the carpet. Had the rooster in the house for some unknown reason, and he began to fight the rooster in the mirror, so I took this video. What a nice bird he was. I could just kick myself for not breeding him. What I'm really looking for are the white feathers in the tail. People are selling partridge silkies, but they don't all have the white in the cushion like he had.
I Have had some pretty silkie roosters but never one with white in the tail.These babies and all babies from now on will be from my own stock.Wished you lived closer.This is one of my partridge roosters from last year
To each his own, Cajun, but I think they are adorable! I also still want an O'Shamo, and they are quite huge and ugly birds. Lol. At this point I cannot imagine feeding them. These little bantam chickens are bad enough. The sparrows and squirrels also think I am their meal ticket.
I need to post pictures of these Birchen Modern Game chickens. Talk about strange looking. Yet they never cease to make me smile when I see them. They also have a very delicate way about them I never would have expected. It is almost like they are little babies I feel I need to protect. Their little legs are very long and fragile. Not an aggressive bone in their little bodies, at least not that I am aware of. When I first saw them at the poultry show they almost seemed quite sinister looking. Haha. I bought them as sort of a joke.
