    This silkie is about 2 months old. This is the first time having silkies. . . Notice the blue ear . . . Is that typical? It's very different from the rest of my silkies and really pretty.

    Blue ears are good, they should have turquoise earlobes. Your's looks rooish to me. I have 2 young silkies right now, about 17-19 weeks old. One is a bearded and the other isn't. The non-bearded doesn't have any streamers, no waddles and very little comb, so based on the devolpement of my non-bearded roo (1 year old now) I am assuming she is a she [​IMG] . This is my roo at around 2-3 months, before he turned EVIL [​IMG]
    This is my two young silkies at about 12- weeks
