    So now my silkies are 23 weeks old. None have crowed, but the darker red (buff) one has had some fast comb development over the last 2 weeks. I do see him/her flapping wings and craning his/her neck in the morning like crowing but no sound. Still no eggs. I have some that are 25 weeks old (white one and 2 white/black mixed breed). So what do ya'll think?

    Snowflake (25 weeks old with mixed silkie) I suspect these are hens, they have very small combs.

    Closer pics would be better. Some of the face and some side shots.
