    I can't seem to find the stupid camera right now, but, my 8 week old silkie/cochin mix is my baby. This stinker follows me around, comes running when I feed that cage (I have HER in with the button community, lol) and is just absolutely my baby. SHE has the cochin comb, so would I be able to sex her at this point? I can't tell by color, because this bird is pure black. Will the silkie blood make it hard to sex, or will it be easy, since it is a single comb? I absolutely cannot keep roos, so please, please cross your fingers that this is a pullet.
