    Sorry the photo is blurry. This is my 12 week old silkie. I'm thinking it is a Blue Splash roo? Do you think I'm right? If he is a boy he hasn't crowed yet [​IMG]

    He does seem to have a rooish comb. He doesn't really look splash in the pic though...more like blue.

    Without seeing the body and the rest of his feather coloration, i will say Blue Rooster.

    Excellent! [​IMG] I had wanted a Blue but the difference between my two silkies' colors is quite a lot. They were supposed to be both blue but the little pullet is dark, almost looks like black charcoal. It honestly doesn't matter what color they are, I have fallen in love with the breed! So sweet [​IMG]

    Hey everybody! You were right, he's Blue Silkie cockeral (17 weeks old today). When the coop light came on at 4:30am, this morning, I heard a noise. It sounded like an owl with a sore throat. [​IMG] I was not able to tell who it was until just now when I let them outside. He proudly performed his new talent for me. What a hoot! [​IMG] (the pun was intended)

    You guys are awsome! Thanks for all of your help!!
