Am pretty sure this is a rooster but what type of comb is this?
Walnut comb? a Picture of the whole body or with another silkie as comparison might be helpful. I've got hens with similar combs to that, so I'm not sure about gender yet.
It kind of looks like a deflated walnut comb. Sometimes the walnut or rose combs can be "hollow" and look deflated
Quote:Oh thanks. I wasn't sure what a walnut comb looked like on a chick. Maybe I should have added that this chick is 2 months old so is probably why it looks deflated?...The reason I stated I was sure it was a rooster is because 4 have these small walnut combs, and two show no comb at all. Thanks!
Quote:Hi there magicpigeon,
I should have mentioned the roo is 2 months old. But very obvious differences in the sexes already. And I'll post a group picture of them, they are Showgirls.
