    I think this chick is 4 months old? I could be wrong, but I am not sure??

    Well here it is...Roo or Hen? At what age can you tell?

    I have looked and research a lot about silkies, but many people say you can't tell until they either lay eggs or they start crowing.

    Thanks

    Thank you very much!
    I am glad it is a hen. I can't have roos because I live in the city.

    This little one is my little gray Silkie; I had this little one ever since it was growing it's crest. I did not want to give it up and now I don't have to.

    I love this silkie so much.
    Thank you! [​IMG]
