    I have a barnyard mix. It was the only one to hatch and is a mix of blue Andalusian and splash silkie roo.
    At 8 weeks we are starting to notice a little wattle and comb development...boy??[​IMG]

    Thanks. I'm guessing the same as you both but he really is a friendly thing. Now, if I can find a way to keep two roos happy with 15 hens.

    I'm thinking cockerel, too, though Silkies and Silkie mixes are very difficult to sex.
