White silkie

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've had this chicken for almost a year, and feel like a total idiot for only questioning the sex now. I was told it was a hen and never thought that it wasn't, even though I've always said that it acts like a rooster. I have zero experience with silkies, so I have no idea. Also I'm not sure that it's 100% Silkie either.

Thanks for any advice.

She appears to be a silky cross hen.

Okay. Thank you both! I was so worried. There haven't been any eggs in her coop for almost 4 months, and I started to get worried!

She does look like a silkie mix. I thought that my two silkies were roosters because of the way that they acted. But they both turned out to be girls, it took my silkies awhile to begin laying, too. :)

Thanks. I'm glad I'm not the only one who experienced this!
