    I am thinking roo on this one. BTW I think i am seeing a single comb on this guy.
    My hen hatched this guy out but it isn't from her its one of my aunts eggs. I believe whatever line we got our roos from (Came from same place) have single combs in their lines.

    Pullet on this one has not comb at all its hair is usally a big poof but was wet due to the rain today.

    I go by the top of the head fluff. It appears that the white one in the last photo is a roo. his feathers stream back from his head. That is how I have been able to tell with mine and it has worked out true. My pullets all have nice uniformed poofs on top of their heads but the roos have the streamers going down the back of their heads.

    I see at least 3 males. The quality of the pics isn't great though.

    I'll get better pics later

    Out of the 7 2 partidge one being frizzle (with a single comb)I'm thinking roo's on both A blue/black being a roo 1 white being a roo the mixed color one I'm still not sure and 2 of the whites being pullets.

    This is my guess based on this- the one partidge with a single comb has not coloring to it but its well noticable can a pullet have a single comb?

    The others I think are roos are very wide and starting to turn from black to the mulberry color.

    The ones I think are pullets have No visable comb at all.

    Single comb is not sex linked, so both sexes can have it. If it is a pullet with a single comb, it (the comb) will develop around the same rate as one on any other sc breed...so don't expect it to stay small like a walnut comb would on a pullet.

    Ok here are atleast as best as I could get better pics of the ones im asking about.

    Single combed frizzle I was thinking roo not sure has a small single comb but with no color. This one does not have the poof like I like so rather it be roo or hen I am going to breed it to one of my better quality silkies.

    so you think the white one in 6,7,8 is a roo? I kinda figured the rest were but the other white one hardly has any comb?

    That white has a very wide comb, and looks quite developed already.
