    Hi everyone,

    Im new to this whole chicken thing and have 3 silkie cross pekins that are approx 6 weeks old now.

    Can anyone out there please tell me if Hewey looks like a roo to you, its twice as big as the other two.

    I hope he isnt because I love him and will have to send him back to the farm as roo's aren't allowed in our neighbourhood.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    First, [​IMG] Hewey looks like he might be a roo by the way his crest is but I can't really tell cause the comb looks kinda blurry. It would be helpful to have a whole body pic of him just standing on his own. [​IMG]

  4. Well, I have a few silkie crosses... With the comb it has, being that its a silkie comb... that is going to make it a bit hard to tell for a few. How old are they? I love that pattern. OH, my avatar is a silkie x faverolle.

    They are only 6 weeks old, I got them unsexed at about 2 weeks old and Im very attached already!
    Hewey is just got so much bigger then the other 2 which makes me think its a boy.....hoping just a greedy hen
    I feel sorry for the other two if he has to go back as they follow him around everywhere! Do you know if its possible to have a quiet roo?

    Thanks for your help!

    I think it's too hard to tell for now. Hewey looks like he could go either way, but the other two are girls.
