A cage of Satinettes at an exotic bird sale

Satinettes are one of the main divisions of the Oriental Frills. They are crested and have a frill on the breast. They are usually grouse-muffed (feathered legs).

Satinettes are distinguished by alway having a white head, neck and main body. The outer wing coverts and the tail are colored.
