    Thank you. Seeing as he is a mix of ee and silkie maybe he will be smaller and I can keep him. I have a silkie that just started crowing and he isnt very loud. But if I cant keep him I wil have to rehome him. : ( He was my first and only hatch on this Thaksgiving so I will try to keep him. Even if I have to build a second coop back in the woods further then the big one. Wich I planed on doing just not this soon. Ssshhhhh, dont tell hubby. lol

    I believe the saddle feathers are the one's on the back right in front of the tail. They will be kind of long and pointy if it is a roo. There is a good diagram of the feathering on here or you can google it, but I don't have the link. I hope you could understand my rambling...[​IMG]
