    Anyone?? I kept thinking roo, but her comb was not wide like my other roo's. My other Silkie roos had a wide comb that was turning a little pinkish. He/she is 11 weeks old.

    Oh, no... its a boy isn't he? I keep calling him a boy, but was hoping not. Last hatch 9 out of 10 were boys. Is this possible? The 7 I sent to the farm were definately boys (confirmed by the farmer) The last 3 silkies were questionable. Its my luck [​IMG]

    You'll get more help in the board specified for this. So I'm going to report this to a mod so they'll move it.

    Thank you for redirecting this topic to where it belongs! We are still questioning what "it" is. Would more pics help? I love this baby so much, I need to make an important decision here [​IMG]
