Hi, I am wondering if this is a "calico" colored silkie AND if it is a lf it is pullet or rooster?  I just picked up a few new silkies and this one is stumping me more than the others.  Any info is much appreciated! Thanks! hu.gif

Looks like a porcelin to me...blue with orange, or in this case blue splash with orange.  Where did you get your calico silkies?  I've been wanting some for a long time.  Thanks, Erika

This one is from a lady in Oregon who has a plant nursery, they don't have a real breeding program.  I thought it was a rooster but, it has been sitting on an egg for a few days.  SOOOOoooo, hhmm.

BOY OR Girl? Calico Silkie...Here are a few more pic of HIM ? HER (?).  So IT likes to sit on the eggs in the coop (possibly laid one idunno.gif), and it gets a peck and chased off by our buff silkie.  It seems like it may have streamers coming off the head at certain angles...possibly pin feathers bigger there?  Not much of a comb at all, but I see a tiny bit of pinkish color ebbing into the comb and it is our largest silkie.  It has a bit of a different screech than the others when it gets hassled, who are girls they almost make a honking sound.

 

I am of no help in this area...I dont want a rooster crowing here, where we shouldn't have one.  I just love the silkies so much!

I was wondering if you think my 6 month old patridge silkie rooster will be good quality? This is my first batch of silkies, and I am thinking of breeding to show.

WOW what a awesome bird!
