    The photo needs to be brightened up a bit, can't tell color or kind of comb. Either a typical hatchery silkie or a mixed breed one. Could you post new photos with better lighting and a good shot from the front to show comb ?.

    Well after my last post, I discovered this particular silkie is a rooster,
    started crowing about three weeks ago and loves to put a chase to the
    hens.

    Its a rooster, we named him Brutis, he is always after the hens, won't let
    you pick him him. He also head butts the hens in the butt. He's mean
    and horny. We will be keeping him separate from the flock for sometime.
