    4 month old Silkie. I am thinking Roo, Hubby is saying Hen... Any ideas ? the white silkie we got at the same time as this one has no wattles or any proper comb growth yet.

    I'm leaning pullet on this one, but Silkies are hard.

    Still early for a silkie. I can't see much the bird is so dark. But would like to see head on photo showing full comb. Crest should be pulled back or held. Maybe you could adjust exposure to make photo lighter (overexpose a bit) or thru Picasso or Photo shop make it lighter so the comb will show up. We already know the pigment is black but, if exposure grayed it a bit, we could see detail of the comb, etc.
