My 3 month old silkies. I dare not guess what they are and would like some opinions please.
Round poofy heads girls I say. Spikey topped boy. See what every one else thinks. I am curious becasue I have three that look like that too. One poofy and two spiky. I wih it were the other way around!!
I am inclined to agree...
I also agree. But my gut says pink wide-comb says boy more so than spike head ATM. Since I've had some pet quality girls without the head poof.
I understand your frustration. I really need only girls..........am hoping all the rest of my little ones give me a chance of making up a nice flock of 10 or so hens. If I can, I hope to manage to keep 1 nice roo in the end.......with no neighbors complaining.
1 of your white ones and one partidge is a girl and the other white is a boy. Notice large comb, some girls can have large combs but he looks very boyish to me.
Quote:Yes, and I'd thought the combs were all supposed to be mulberry in color? hmmmmm....I am so new at this.
Quote:I think he has a boy air about him as well. The other 2 have a "softer" look to their faces don't ya think?
Well, show birds should have the dark color. It's very well possible for hatchery quality, pet quality, and even perhaps as much as a breeder quality bird to have the wrong color comb if it has a well desired trait otherwise.
All mine are pet quality with bright red combs, small crests, featherless middle toes, and probably the wrong size, shape, and color! But I could care less as they are pets and utility, not for show.
Quote:OH...ok! Good to know then. I don't plan on doing any showing.
