    This is a silkie mix at 4 weeks. Any guesses?

    With that much comb at 4 weeks, likely to be a boy.

    When the single comb goes like that in a silkie mix at that age... roo -- I have his near brother here 12 weeks later...

    That's Sheridan, he's actually gotten a bit more spectacular since that photo and he's a really sweet chicken.
