    I boutht 2 silkies in the summer (hen/roo). Now one is bigger, has roo tail, other one smaller, not so much of a tail. Both crow! They don't fight, very attached to each other like a couple. Ever hear of silkie hens crowing? I'v had Polish & know that hens can have spurs. Supposed to adopt them out to someone but don't know what to do now. Info? Thanx! [​IMG]

    My silkie hen crows sometimes...well she yells. She will stretch out her neck and just like a roo and give out a pitiful sounding "crow" The only time I ever saw her do this though was when she was separated from the rooster.

    this one does it after the other does. nice crow, though. she has some tail feathers but not green like her buddy. they're inseparable & don't fight. ?
