    I was given a pair of Silkies over the winter. I thought I had a boy and girl however my hen started crowing recently and now I'm not sure. Anyway can you take a look at these pictures and help me. The first two are of my "hen" and the last one is my rooster. Thank you.

    Silkies are VERY hard to judge but I think you have two roos. When people say you have to wait for a Silkie to crow or lay an egg, they aren't joking. [​IMG]
