    Ok, this little one was hatched first week of August? So I think [​IMG] My one silkie is a definately a boy, he has a huge comb and crows every morning when I let them out. This one, Tribble, has me a little puzzled. I want to say boy some days, and girl other times. I figure I post it here to see what you all say.

    Thanks all! I really like him better than my other silkie rooster [​IMG] He is nice and well mannered. While my other rooster is well, has a nepoleon complex. He tries to pick fights with my large Cochin rooster through the fencing and I feel like he is always sizing me up [​IMG] I was really hoping for a pair, but I guess I'll be looking for girls now. And the chicken order list continues to grow! Thanks to chicken math [​IMG]
