    Will a 12 wk old Silkie roo's comb change color as he ages? It is coming in pink/red. Will it change to mulberry as he gets older? Or is what it is, what it is?
    Thanks.

    My guess is that it won't change, but I would be interested in hearing someone elses opinion. [​IMG]

    Quote:That's my opinion too, but would also like input from those who have raised more Silkies than I have.

    Sometimes a darker comb will lighten with maturity, but darken....not a chance.
