    Yea well thats what I kinda thought too only because his head feather are so different to the others...The others have kinda pompom type styles and this one has more of a mohalk.
     
  7. he probably is a rooster, i once had a silkie but then it was too stupid to run away from a dog and got killed. so i never got one again and so i don't really know my silkies... well, my parents won't let me get one, i think they are cute, and i would get another one.. but oh well! maybe when i grow up!
