    I am looking for some info. We have 3 RI Reds and one Black Silkie. 5 months old. The Reds are hens, the Silkies was..... "for sure (99%) A HEN". So do Silkie hens really crow like roosters? Some web sites say they do. Our Silkie crows about 5 times each morning after the birds leave the coop. If it is really a rooster it will have to go. Input ? At this age how can I tell for sure if it is a cockerel or a hen? Thanks
