    I have one silkie that is throwing me - please take a close look - I do see some mauve coloring in the comb but there is no raised comb..
    I am hoping for a pullet because she/he is the sweet one .. Also this one is the smallest of all her/his bothers and sisters..

    Looks like a pullet but hard to say. If he/she starts getting streamers on the head it is a roo.

    Just like your roo has that you have pictured. The noticeably longer streamers on his head.

    Compared to the definite roo, I'd say pullet [​IMG]

    I'd say pullet because she has such a feminine/delicate face compared to my white silkie roo.
