    HI!

    Okay, We have three, 3 month old, silkies: Sideswipe (who is already crowing), Tiny Tina (who is much smaller and has almost no comb), and snowball (who we are not sure of the sex). I am guessing that snowball is probably male considering his large comb, but am wanting some other opinions. My son and I have a bet going (he wants it to be a her, so we can keep her).

    Whichever one of us (my son or I) that gets the most votes from you gals/guys for the gender we picked wins! The loser scoops the litter boxes 2 nights in a row. And unfortunately, Snowball will be re-homed to a lucky new family if male.

    Here are the pics, please excuse that he/she is dirty. It rained here in FL for several days, so snowball decided to take a dirtbath in poopy pine chips. [​IMG] Don't worry, he'll get a bath before too much longer.

    I'm not very experienced in telling gender, but this one looks like a roo if you ask me. Hope they get a good home!
