    Hi all hope you can help!

    Here are my 2 beloved Silkies! Initially thought one was a white and one a blue but as the adult feathers came in they are obviously both whites but are quite different!

    Ginny was always smaller but in last week or so has grown larger than the other....also has a very bulgy looking purple/red comb

    Hermione has always had bigger hair....very dark around the beak but no real comb to see.

    They are both 10 weeks old now

    Any suggestions??

    Thank you [​IMG]

    Well, I would guess that Ginny is a rooster, hermione, a hen.
