    My silkies are 9 months old. No crowing and no eggs. We have two roosters. Are these female? Excuse the bad hair day (rain and snow) [​IMG]

    They appear to be hens at nine months.

    I don't see anything screaming cockerel so I'm thinking pullets on both of them. :eek:)

    If it's cold out that might be why there not laying because silkies aren't that cold hardy so that might be why there not laying at nine months
