Hen or Roo? -Silkie

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Need help deciding if our silkie Emma is really an Emma. She is very talkative, even more than our rooster, but had not crowed, and doesn't have the big fluff like our other hen. I really want her to be an Emma but what do you all think? She is about 6/7 months old.

Whoever said life over 40 is boring apparently hasn't had a fun life!

I'm thinking pullet.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!
