What gender is my Silkie ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Need your help guys! I want to believe this one is a female, but I'm having my doubts. In the morning it makes a "caaaaw" sound, almost like a cat meow, nothing like a cock-a-doodle-doo. Age is about 5 months. So here are the pics:


Is this a hen or a roo?

Another pic of hen/roo

Is she Frita or is he Fred?

This is the sister, Thelma who I am almost certain is a hen.


Any advice would be greatly appreciated. These are my first chickens since I had broilers in FFA in high school. Thanks in advance guys!

The solid black is a cockerel, the bottom hen is gorgeous. What color is she?

Cockerel is Black,    the other I believe is called Partridge color- the hen.

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))
