Hey all! I recently hatched a silkie-cochin who is approx. 7 weeks old now. I have become really attached to her, but I think i'm seeing saddle feathers. I'm really concerned. She has no comb whatsoever. Is it possible she could be a he due to saddle feathers? I will get pics up in a minute, but this is my main Q. Thanks! Update: My little birdie is now 8 weeks old. There are still little to no signs of comb or wattles. However, the feathers are getting me worried. (Please excuse me if i'm overacting, I have a tendancy to do that) The neck feathers are getting fairly shiny 'rims' around them. They are fairly thin. This is my favorite chicken and I'm going to be really bummed if it's a boy. I love him/her soooo much!
