    Okay so I know with silkies, if your a impatien person, they'll teach you patiens when it comes to giving up their gender... But I noticed one of my silkies head is slightly different then the other two... the chicks are a couple of week old, but they havent gone through their "weird" looking stage yet.. so I just wanted to see if its just my imagination or if I really see a roo!!
    TIA for your help!

    Suspected White roo?
