    I really need someone's help on sexing my silkie, Lorraine. The breeder said she was a she, but still.. couldn't be sure (I understand that), but it's been 4 weeks, and her voice seems to be cracking (seems manly to me [​IMG]) so any help would be appreciated!

    [​IMG] Looks like apullet to me. She could beacting "manly" because she wants to be the dominant hen. I'd guess she may start laying in a few weeks. ~ {The red coloring above her beak.}

    Quote:She isn't dominant at all. However, she isn't the lowest. She was put into an established flock of five, and no one picked on her. I don't know if they knew she was a chicken [​IMG]

    I hope you are right! [​IMG] Thanks for your imput

    Thanks everyone! I'm so happy to hear that! Glad I won't have to choose between two roosters.
