Wilkie Boy or Girl?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
We have 3 Silkies and have been getting on a rage 2-3 eggs everyday so we assumed all of them were girls. Fast forward to this week, one lady stared brooding and I noticed that one of the others took on some different facial characteristics. Is the one actually a Roo?

:welcome  Both birds pictured appear to be hens.  As mature as they appear, a rooster should be crowing by now.  Just as they do not need a rooster to lay eggs, hens do not need a rooster to go broody.

agree  - plus hens would vote a rooster down, if they had the right- to -vote.
