    My frizzled silkie is 4 and half months old now maybe almost 5 months now. I showed pictures awhile ago when he/she was younger and everyone said he was a he. I have thought he was a he since. I have noticed he is different from the other young roo's.

    He has a single comb but has no color to it just blackished colored. Has no wattles. The other young roos his age does.
    I don't have any recent pics of him but here is some of him when he was younger I will try tomorrow or this weekend when the weather is to fair up to get updated pictures.

    A Face shot taken back Last month. His comb is a big bigger now but dosent stand up kinda bends together.

    I'm not positive... I had a silkie with a sc and I thought it was a roo but it turned out to be a hen so I can't quite decide, I guess I'm not very helpful! [​IMG]

    Oh he is even nicer looking now he has passed his gawky stage and is blooimg and feathering in Nice. He escaped on me today and I thought I lost him I was very upset. After looking for him an hour he just slowly came waltzing up to me...LOL I was happy a dog had not got him I was very upset. [​IMG]
