    Prolapse of some kind?

    Can anyone offer guidance on this? This is a young (rooster I thought) Silkie. I took a paper towel and gently pressed and it popped right back in. The silkie doesn’t seem to be bothered at all.

    1.5 month old Silkies

    I have two month and a half old Silkies. I’m sure they aren’t full silkie as one has a single come and my paint has green eyes (both of those not pictured). My pretty white one has a red comb :( however the blue is much bigger than white. Looking for opinions on sex of both. Thanks!
