    I am trying to make sure our "guesses" are still correct:

    Silkie -- was guessed to be a Roo...wdyt ..still? ALL these are Approx. 3ish months old..

    Golden Laced Polish "Polinda" was said to be a "roo".... (terrible photo; but the crest feathers are slightly rounded ...but some are kinda pointy too..the comb has NOT grown any...

    That polish is a hen. Your silkie will not even crow til it's 8-9 months old, so you need to move the poof and if there is even a remote bit of comb it's a roo. The last photo is a roo. Look at the tail feathers and compare that to your polish - you can see hers are much higher lifted and not drooping at all the way roos tails do.

    They honestly all look like cockerels to me, I'm no expert though so hopefully others will chime in.
