Hello all, A few days ago - I got my first two little babies....two white silkies...about 5 weeks of age (although this is not certain - could be older). One of them is a little bigger than the other and this morning - I could swear was a first attempt at a crow...loud and while flapping the wings. Now, since we were unable to sex them....can I pretty well say this little one is a cockerel? My other one is quiet and a little smaller. Ok - now for another question. At what age would a pullet/hen be tempted to sit on eggs. I have the opportunity to acquire a few fertilized eggs...and wondered if my little one might be inclined to sit on them. Should I wait a few months or give it a try? Would rather have the hen do the work - the way nature intended, rather than use an incubator....but just not sure if she is old enough yet. I'm looking forward to your replies...being a newbie at this - it is always great to learn from others who have the experience! Thanks in advance!!
