    I have a 10 week old blue silkie cockerel I need to find a home for. I will either sell him, or trade him for a silkie pullet around the same age. Please pm me if interested. I've just got too many younger chicks that he refuses to get along it's either him, or my entire brainer! I will not ship him, so pickup is required.


    Well wouldn't you know it. I'm taking this guy to auction this morning, and I wake up to the sound of his first cute! Now take that!.. LOL all of you "roo skeptics" who didn't believe me! [​IMG]

    How can you tell he is a cockeral at 10 weeks?

    Quote:Are you kidding me? I've got a couple 5 month old blue chicks now that I STILL can't tell what they are. My best educated guess is that one is a cockeral, but there still isn't any comb to speak of...

    Quote:The person I bought him from sold him to me as a cockerel. Also, he has a very visible single comb. He's much more aggressive than the other, and seems to "guard" her from the other chicks.

    He looks like a roo to me. I ended up with 3 out of 3. My black one looks just like him & crowed at 8 or 9 weeks!

    Aren't silkies suppose to have a walnut comb? Do some silkies have single combs?
