I was giving a partridge chicken as a gift. A problem was her feather where so bad and cover in other bird poop we cut of her head feather. Long story short I want to know if it a he or a she and atleast how old is she/ he because I raised up my easter egger and it took her until now 5 month to sound like a hen- meaning she stop making does little tweet tweet noise. This silkie though sound like my hen, but I don't know! Any help will be appreciated!
