    We just started with chickens, and my daughter really wanted a silkie, so we got her one. It's only 5-6 weeks old, and I know it's difficult to tell, but it's beginning to get a bit of a red comb, so I'm wondering if this is normal for silkies, or if it's most likely a rooster. Anyone have any ideas???[​IMG]

    Reminds me a lot of my 2 little cockerels sadly, though hatchery stock is a lot different from show stock babies.

    If that were one of my chicks, I'd tag it as a cockerel.
