    I've never had silkies before, and this was the only one that hatched so I have nothing to compare it to. Can you elaborate some on what looks girly on her? Is it the size of the comb & wattles? The color? Something else? She's a keeper either way, I'm just curious what I've got. Thank you!

    I can not tell by the face alone. If I was going by that, I would say roo.

    I need to see his body shape.

    I have two silkies and I'm going to have to say roo because neither of my girls had that big of a comb and neither one have any red at all and their waddles are tiny
