    It all started 10 years ago when my mom found a stray bantam chicken in her back yard. She kept it contained thinking someone would come looking for it, but after a couple of weeks, she said here you all live in the country. So I took the little girl home. I knew nothing about chickens.lol But she was a great teacher, and have been hooked ever since. I have 8 hens ( 5 Bantam Cochins and 3 Silkies ) and 4 new youngsters 2 Bantam Cochin Frizzles and 2 Silkies. Not for sure there sex yet. I've learned not to jump the gun on that.lol I'm a pet groomer by trade, animal lover by nature. I'm owned by 7 rescue dogs and 8 cats.

    If they are feathered in. Telling the sex is as easy as looking at the saddle feathers ( right in front of the tail ) tapered cock. wide and rounded pullet.
