    Hi everyone,
    Would love to hear your opinions whether this 12 week old Silkie is a female or male. I bought a couple from a city pet store with unknown sexes inclosed a policy of a refund or exchange if it turns out to be male. I am desperately hoping he is a she and not a he. [​IMG]. I've become very attached to this little guy... I meant girl. Her comb is a lot wider and bigger than the other 3, her pom pom isn't as full and fluffy as the other one I bought from the same hatchling.

    Thank you for your time and help.

    The mug shot below is of the suspect.

    This one is of the pair, Left is suspect and Right is sister. Her comb is narrower and slimmer.

    My fears are realized [​IMG] looks like he's going back soon. My council only allows hens no rooster. Thank you very much all, greatly appreciated. [​IMG]
