So my older silkie chicks are now 2 to 2 1/2 mths now. I think I only have one roo in there. I keep checking for others but noone is showing any signs. This little guys developed very defined comp and waddles about 2 weeks ago and attempted his fisrt crow oh about 5:06 this am. (It woke me from a dead sleep via baby monitor). I am wondering maybe if he developed so fast because he is the only one or maybe he will be my dominant one. I know with Silkies it is very hared to tell, and I am not sure just yet, but imagine the luck. I went by the old farmers tale of picking them up if they fought back I picked a different chick. And I have to admit that this one chick I was on the fence about while picking them out. I still have 14 in the brooder and I am sure I have more roos in that bunch. The first crow was too funny. Like I said I was in a dead sleep and assumed at first something was after my babies. Nope it was a crow. I may have to put this monitor on a timer to shut off around 4:45 as they get older not sure I want to be up with the chickens if they are going to be up at 5 every morning. This new adventure in my life has thus far been so vey fulfiling. I have my coffee in the run and every night I just sit in there with them and hand feed snacks, who new this was just what I needed.
