Ok I was told this was a hen when she was given to my daughter. Others say not she but a he. I ask what characteristics are indicating a rooster, I'm told it just looks like a boy, others say it has roo feet. I don't know what roo feet means when it has no spurs or spur nubs on it's legs. I was told it's poof tilts the wrong way for a hen.. Honestly it is just poofy to me. This hen was hatched early Sept. here is the pictures of my he/she Silkie .. I can't wait to hear this one.
