    Ok, so this one hatched August 13th, making him/her 12 1/2 weeks old right now. I am thinking that my little "Bramble" is looking more and more roo-like as he fluffs out. Wondering what all the silkie experts out there think??? I'm just too impatient to wait and see if he crows!! [​IMG]

    I am thinking I am starting to see sickles...of course, maybe he was just outside and got dripped on!! [​IMG]

    Very young to say for certain, and poor photos for determining gender. Need to see a profile showing hackle area (looking for streamers and profile of crest) and also a better photo of the tail.
