post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My silkies are not big enough yet bit I'm wondering what to watch for? I have heard they can be hard to sex. Also I got 6 straight run bantams. 3 are polish. What can I watch for? I'm hoping for Adleast 1 roo out of the bantams and silkies. Thanks for your help..

Silkies:
Watch the comb/wattle growth. typically, roosters will grow a bigger comb/wattles. Let me know how you make out with he silkies. I've been in debating buying some straight run smile.png
When I don't fit in and I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life
Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ (forgiven ~ Sanctus real))
