Silkie Male or Female? - Page 3

post #21 of 25

My hen's comb is a little smaller, but not by much. But she's also tinier than your average silkie hen.

I have  two silkie roosters, both of them were almost fully developed if not done by 5 months. They were crowing at 4 months. They got combs and wattles 2-3 weeks before anyone else.

I see where you're coming from now, its just that I thought my silkie's crest was supposed to look like your white silkies crest. I think it just differs with the genes.

Ah right, my silkie is also very small. Not sure why it looks bigger in these photos. I still feel that she's a chick , doesn't feel like 5 months lol

Omg, ikr. It feels like just last week I had picked her up from the feed store and was marveling at how cute she was. <3
