    I hope I am right too. Most of the time I can guess them correctly, but every now and then I am stumped. Right now I have one GL that I can't decide what it is. And an Igor that has traits of both. Poor Igor.

    Prepare to see the ghastliest polish on the planet. Igor is also 10 weeks, but has a hunched posture and lurches when he/she walks. It rolled uncontrollably for the first hour after it hatched and has never been right. But it's a sweet bird so it gets special attention. It's getting saddle feathers, but does not have any other roo traits.

    Igor is the GL towards the center/back:

    Look like a roo to me but it's hard to tell from the picture. Good luck with him/her. I wonder why it is hunched over like that.

    It's hard to tell in person too. I stare at him/her quite a bit. Poor Igor started out bad when he/she hatched and never stood up straight. But he's super sweet and will always have a home here. He/she hangs out with the girls, the roos ignore him/her. I guess I'll find out when Igor is grown up.

    Here's my other I don't know what it is GL. Missing some tail feathers of course, just to make it more difficult. Care to take a guess?

    Yeah, I agree. With my silkie i had no idea if it was a pullet or cockeral until he crowed. Luckily he crowed very early at only six weeks, so it was pretty easy. But i was so sure he was a she that now I have a rooster named Miss Jemima.

    I haven't named my silkies yet, they are all too small to tell what they are. Igor is stuck being Igor no matter what it ends up being.

    10 weeks. I hatched them all together.

    you can see Igors awful feathers, he/she's lurking behind the one in question.
