    Hello. I can't figure out the sex of my bantam silkies and bantam cochins. They're 4 months old. Can you help?

    Out to pasture
    I need to see silkies - facing forward with crests held or pulled back (rubber band) . The white looks like a pullet can't see the black one well

    Help! I am very new to keeping chickens and need some friendly advice please.
    I have a Plymouth rock which we bought thinking was a hen but am now not so sure. It is approx 26 weeks old. It's comb is still small (though much larger than our Araucana's!) and while it's feathers are more dark than light, it has started sprouting very long tail feathers. No eggs, but also no crowing. It's a very aggressive bird (pecks and scratches everyone - other hens and our kids). Can anyone please help clear up my confusion?
    Thanks in advance
