    RIR is 9.5 weeks, Silkie is 14 weeks. I'm leaning cockerel on the RIR

    Not sure on the Silkie, but could you get a better picture of the RIRs comb?

    Has the comb grown any redder?

    Not really any redder, but larger. Pretty much still pink. But this guy/gal is the most dominant and challenges all of the other chickens.

    Hmm, do you have to get rid of it as soon as possible if it is a rooster? Because, I would wait a little bit longer to see how it develops before giving it the final verdict.

    I'm worrying that he/she is picking on the others. I think he's drawn a little blood. If we need to find him a new home, it would probably be good to start figuring it out. [​IMG]
