    not a roo, no comb at all yet, and 2 other posters gave me the idea of a polish cross...so we will see.​

    Skin seems very light for a Silkie cross. With five toes I am thinking Sultan cross. Comb would be very tiny and not a very good indicator of gender. However, judging the coloration I am thinking rooster as well.

    That little backwards crest, called a "tassel" makes me think it might have some Pyncheon bantam in it (but they are very rare). They are also 4 toed and clean legged. Would like to see pics when it's older.

    I'm going with roo because of how the feathers are looking. Rather pointy on the back and saddle area. Though the crested kinds sometimes give me a little trouble.
