    I couldn't begin to offer a guess on the silkies. Mine kept me guessing right up to the point that they laid eggs.

    Thank you! Yeah, I don't know if there is a way to tell their gender until then. I haven't heard any crowing from any of them, though, so, fingers crossed it's a good sign. Around what age do they start getting all the head feathers?
