    Hi all!
    I have a 2 month old Silkie chick that hatched at the end of May from my broody buff Orpington.
    I have a feeling "it" is a rooster!?![​IMG]

    Does anyone know what gender it is???

    I was hoping for a hen[​IMG]

    Also, how noisy are Silkie roosters?

    Thanks

    Snowball is 2 months old @QueenMisha
    Snowball doesn't have a big wattle like usual rooster and has a wattle like a hen but does have head feathers like a rooster!!! So confused

    They look like pullets so far, but wait another month or so to tell for sure.
