    I think the buff one with a single comb is male but im not sure. they are the same age. Two out of the four are maturing a lot slower. I also have a black but she isnt big enough to tell.

    Lindy,

    Just a guess, but I am going to say the Blue is a Roo. Could you post of some more pics (close up the faces so that we can see the combs) and side view photos.

    the last post, i posted four silkies, 2 buff, one blue, one black,
    so is the buff without a fluffy head a roo? and the blue a roo? The other two hens (buff, and black)
