    Sorry about the quality of the photos, IPad cameras have terrible quality. Anyways, after recently getting Kebab (5-6 weeks) I have been back and forth as to what I think it's gender is. Am I right to assume he's a boy or am I just too early, all replies are appreciated.[​IMG]

    If anyone needs a different/better quality photo I can take (or at least attempt) another.

    My guess is Roo but Silkies are harder to sex and still pretty young...Pretty color.

    I'd guess he's a cockerel as well, with that comb. But, as stated before, they are very difficult to sex.
