    That's my feeling also but they are 3 months and I guess I'm hoping I don't hear any crows[​IMG]

    Since I have Silkies myself and the Roos are very noticeable in my group I am sure to say that you have a group of Ladies..... the roos have a very defined comb on their head and less feathering there as well. I also want to say that I really like your splash one and would love to have one of those.... I have 2 white ladies and 2 solid black ladies and 2 white roos... Wondering if there is a chance I may get one to look like that? [​IMG]

    I think you need a blue roo andblue or splash hen

    black x blue = 50% black, 50% blue

    blue x blue = 25% black, 50% blue, 25% splash

    black x splash = 100% blue

    blue x splash = 50% blue, 50% splash

    splash x splash = 100% splash
