Buff Roo Silkie?

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by CheshieChick13, Jul 3, 2010.

  1. I believe my buff may be a roo? He? is approximately 5-6 months old. No crowing but, today I saw him doing the "rooster shuffle" with my splash roo. I started reading posts on sexing silkies by description I am thinking roo, what do you guys think?

    Thanks

  5. Thanks a bunch for the verification. Guess he will be getting sold. Poor Roos' always get the ol boot [​IMG]
    Tiramisu,
    I have a blue with a similar crest (not really puffy), but unlike this guy has not developed those streamer feathers in it's crest or a defined comb/wattles. My blue silkie is a month or two younger but I'm thinking it may be a she, cause this guy was already well into defining those traits a month or so ago. I could be wrong I will probably be posting again about my blue in a month or so LOL!

    Thanks again guys!!

    Quote:Idk Im just guessing lol. I don't know about streamers..but s/he seems to have a pretty bumpy comb, it looks like it actually got bigger today, and the wattles are a bit bigger. Bigger than my partridges, which are still little nubs. I'll wait a few months a guess again [​IMG]
