    5 month old silkie I was leaning towards rooster but now I’m doubting myself. It developed its comb wattles rather quickly but the past weeks the development has stalled. Also the tail seemed rather long but it too has stopped getting longer. It acts very hen like and has yet to try crowing my other roos are all acting rooish. I know its hard to tell with silkies but maybe someone with more experience has a guess.
