Hi, so I’m thinking my blue silkie is a rooster. We only have one silkie so I don’t have anything to compare it to, but from what I’ve read online I’m leaning towards rooster. BUT compared to my other 3 chickens, who are all obviously hens, my silkie is very shy & the hens all pick on them too (could be because the silkie is the smallest).
I was just looking to see what others think. I’ll absolutely wait of course for a crow or an egg, but if they are a rooster we can’t keep them, so I will be very sad.
thank you for reading.

He's beautiful!!!! But I'm leaning towards a cockerel. But he's very young still to tell.
