    Do I have 2 cockerels? Please say no...

    I think they are pullets. Sometimes when it is windy chickens will open there mouths, because it is harder to breath. They would not be trying to crow at that age.

    Frizzle or Sizzle

    I think that that is a frizzle. Silkies are usually called sizzles. That is not a silkie its skin is red and its feathers are white. Silkies have white feathers with black skin. Sizzles should have 5 toes instead of four.

    My silkie chicken had a limp for a while and now it has gotten worse. She is stumbling when she walks now and I don’t know why. She started limping months ago.

    Wry neck hen- unsure what else I can do to help her

    What you are doing so far is good. I would keep her separated from the flock, and keep on giving her the vitamin E and selenium. It usually takes up to a month for a chicken to get over weary neck. Weary neck usually will get worse before it gets better.
