    Need some help and advice please! This is our new little silkie "Annabelle" - she/he is 8 weeks old and is constantly fussing with our 8 wk. old cochin bantam, that we know is a roo. Anyone want to weigh in on whether Anna is a she or a he?? At this point, we're just not really sure [​IMG]

    I would say roo due to the slick backed crest. Females usually have more of a poof/pom pom.

    When it's facing you head on, there is more than just a 'hint' of a comb - lol. That's kinda what we had begun to think as well. Thank you for responding!
