    Hello! I've been doing a significant amount of reading throughout this site and finally have joined. I have found the info to be a great help.
    And now, I need help! I've just received this beautiful red pyle and am thinking...Roo?! She/he is about 4-5 months old, large, no comb growth, bearded so cannot detect waddles, a few streamers.If any one has thoughts I would greatly appreciate it. Being an urban chicken keeper, I cannot have roo's (sigh), and would hate to get attached and then have to re-home.

    Really need a photo of bird squarely facing front with CREST pulled back or tied up, to display full extent of comb. You have a gorgeous silkie, but, would love to check out the comb

    Its a male.
    I have a couple red pyle birds and the red on the females is restricted to the breast and little on hackles. Only the males have red up on the shoulders and back.
