    Well, comparing my 7 week old to yours, I would say mine is a girl. No comb at all. Since she is a singleton, and we have a roo overpopulation at the moment, that is good news to me.[​IMG]

    Update on my Silkie that I Got at spring Swap from Marge Best, he/she is now getting some very faint little black spots on its crest back and wings the bigger/older he/she gets the more spots it gets. this baby came from a paint to paint breeding and the daddy has the beautiful buff on it like this one with very pronounce markings.
    age 4 months, any guesses on gender an whether more black spots will shoe up? name?
