    I have a partridge 4-5 month old silkie that's mostly black. Just a little bit of brown on it's neck. The comb looks henish to me, but I've noticed it's started to get a green sheen on it's wings and tail. Does this happen with females, or only males? Thanks [​IMG]

    Sorry, my camera is not working. Any thoughts on the green sheen?

    The green sheen can appear on both hens and roosters, so we would need a picture to help you out... sorry!
