    I have 4 Silkies that are 8 weeks old. I was hoping that someone might be able to tell me gender or even just what color they are, they are all so funky looking. Out of Blue Splash Roo and White Hen. Thanks

    Hi! So I am new at having chickens and I incubated eggs and got 4 beautiful chickens!! 3 silkies and one serama. The serama is a male. But today after a week on vacation (they were watched) noticed one of my sikies comb is seemingly larger and slightly red. This one has always been larger then the other two. I wish I had better pictures but they live in a coop I made at my school and I go visit them to take care of them. Any ideas? [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]
