    I agree the splash stands more upright but her beak isn't thick like my roo. Also she doesn't have the ribbons growing from her crown .

    They are both very pretty , but like abbot and Costello one is tall the other is not [​IMG]

    My 20 week olds haven't crowed or layed yet

    They both look like pullets to me, but Silkies can be tricky to sex. Pretty birds!
