    You may be right from the looks of that comb. It looks like the breast is still salmon or brown. On silvers, BB red. Partridge that will be black for males. The wild card on EE is there are so many colors and patterns in the mix it is hard to guess sometimes

    I'm wondering if I got more than one roo. I ordered our chicks from Meyers. 1 rooster and the rest girls. There are 2 that are showing the signs but probably too young to tell yet. Hoping they have a good sexing record.

    That's a lot of breeding! I really like silkies, my husband not some much. There is just something about ee's puffy cheeks and pretty colors I really love.

    If you plan on hatching eggs at some point, all you have to do is separate him with a few hens to be sure every egg is fertile.
