    Ok I was 99% sure this was a pullet, I still think it's likely a pullet, but she got into a huge fight with my blue roo this morning. "Huge" is relative I guess as it was the tamest fight ever! But she reared up, was hopping, flapping, kicking, feathers all puffed...and then she ran [​IMG] My silkies are all 24 weeks. Here is a recent pic. As far as I can tell no comb. I was so sure until today? He had tried to mate her 5 minutes earlier and my partridge roo came to her rescue, it was so sweet [​IMG]



    So what do I have?
