This is our silkie, Little Cora. We've naively thought all along that she was a hen because that's what they told us at Cal Ranch, but she's started crowing every morning and throughout the day for the last month! I know hens can crow sometimes, but I'm just a little worried. She should start laying within the next month, if she's a hen. Can anybody tell from these pictures? We are new to chickens this year and largely clueless!
