This silkie is about 20-25 weeks old. The one on the right in the first picture is a 2yr old hen. I am interested to know if the other one is a roo. It's already bigger than the hen, so I am curious! Thank you for your help!!

I say boy, the comb is very prominent, the crest is taking on a sweeped back look in the back which could be streamers starting, and the amount of silver leakage - you see more leakage in boys over girls.
