I tend to get a lot of questions asking if one should breed this bird, or that bird. Is this silkie show quality or should I pet it out. I can never answer those kinds of questions without first knowing what a person's goal is when breeding. Some breeders strive to make the perfect bird according to the SOP (Standard of Perfection). Perhaps they have this goal to win at shows, or simply satisfy a goal they have made for themselves as a breeder. Others may simply breed to share the love of poultry. In this case, a few points off, or an extra toe here or there is not going to constitute re-homing the bird. No matter what someone's goal is for their breeding program... Quality Care must come before all else. If you goal is to make money breeding chickens, you have chosen the wrong career path! When a person's love of poultry turns into something other than love... bad things happen. Overcrowding + Unclean housing = chickens that do not thrive. While in the beginning one may be making some money, the lack of care the birds are receiving will catch up to a breeder in the end.
All of our silkies are looked over and loved on daily!
