    well i think you got at least one roo there, the one in the back, for hens at 4 months should have more feathers on the head i think, my girls head is the same age i think and she has a lot.

    Quote:I think the generation makes a difference(these were being worked on). I will post a pic of the roo that hatched with them, his comb is pretty big.
    crossing them back to a silkie roo will help improve the topknot. This was not my breeding but I did hatch them.
    shay20- looks like yours is probably at least a F10, pretty bird [​IMG]
