    Awww! SundownWaterfowl he/she/it ([​IMG]) looks just like my silkies now! Only he/she is two days younger than mine. So to answer your question......It kinda has that roo-ish look to it. Can I see the comb? [​IMG] One of mine has a pretty wide comb right now, but who knows. They're silkies after all. And I also got lucky with one of my silkies getting a single comb... although its not what I ordered [​IMG] but a silkie none the less [​IMG]

    Sorry, but it's way too early to tell.

    Here is another picture, so you can see his/her front of its face.

    He/She also has 3 other siblings. So Im hoping I get either 1 male 3 females, or 2 males and 2 females.

    I figured its too early, but if you have a guess. [​IMG]
