    How odd that you can't see a comb yet on Stella, s/he is really looking like a rooster to me, and the fact that s/he crowed makes me all the more suspicious. There the rare occurence of hens crowing that I hear about now and then, though. The lack of uniform steel blue plumage seems to suggest rooster to me.

    Izzy and Barbie are girls. Congratulations!

    the last 2 look like hens to me, not sure about your first one. but if it crowed, seems likely its a male.

    Quote:Yeah, no comb, not even a poof. I have two white show Silkies that I got from a breeder and she showed me how to tell males from femails, and Stella fit all the credentials of a hen. But she crowed! T_T
    YAY! Izzy and Barby are girls! Thank goodness!

    Sorry, but 'Stella' is a rooster - quite a beautiful one as a matter of fact. Izzie and Barbie are pullets.
