Silkie rooster?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am thinking that this little chick (6weeks) is looking like a rooster but it is my first silkie chick so I was looking for some input from some other members. Thanks smile.png and I'm kinda thinking it may be a mixed silkie because it doesn't have the dark dark skin of the silkies I have looked at?

At 6 weeks, that's a rooster.

I had watching the poof on the top of his head for a week or so thinking it was kinda looking like those streamers ppl had mentioned in other posts that the silkie roosters get and then a few days ago the comb started to become more noticeable. Ahhh what's another rooster, working on our next coop/run so it's not like I can't keep him

Looks like a cockerel to me, too.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

Given the size of its comb and wattles at 6 weeks, I'm thinking cockerel as well.
