So about four-five months ago, I was given a batch of four silkies roughly about two months old. All turned out to be cockerels. One has a bad case of valgus Vera and the curly toe syndrome. By the time I got him, there wasn’t anything I could do to fix it. He’s about five months old now, doing very well and is very happy. He’s learned how to stand, walk, and run with his disabilities. The only thing he lacks is his manhood. Yes. He is a boy. He has spurs growing and male hackle and saddle feathers. But his comb and wattles are still a mulberry purple and small. Because of his disabilities I have seen that he developes slower than his luckier siblings but this seems unusual. Could this mean that he is steril or that he possibly has hormonal issues as well?
