    I am pretty sure this is a rooster because of the enlarged comb and bigger size than the other silkies. Can anyone confirm? It is 4.5 months old. I haven't heard a crow yet, but I feel like it acts like a rooster. I am located somewhere I am not allowed to keep even hens so I would have to find him a new home. If anyone is interested in him he would be free to a good home. I am located in Southern Maryland.

    Thanks guys!
