    Hi!
    The comb on this guy is confusing me; it's larger than our other silkie roosters. (I hope the image attaches.) Is this even a silkie? He came from tractor supply in a large order of bantams. I didn't find anything on Google that was similar.
    Thanks in advance for your expert opinions!![​IMG]

    It appears to be a poorly bred silkie. I am seeing a lot of large ones this year, and many seem to have single combs like yours does.

    Like oldhen says, there have been a lot of weird silkie mixes from TSC this year. I think you're in that club.
